It takes our site back to full occupancy, with Space Zero taking the entire 3,638 sq ft fifth floor following a period of growth, prompting the need for a more expansive workspace.
The space was previously occupied by Telcom, which relocated to Northstar last year.
Space Zero joins a host of originative businesses, from gym operator Train Urban and wellbeing cafe and event space, Feel Good Club, in the commercial units, to five floors of offices taken by tech-firm, Softwire, graduate development consultancy, Grayce, architects practise Hawkins/Brown and our own head office, with Space Zero taking the top floor.
Wayne Taylor, director at Space Zero said: “In our pursuit of the perfect location, Hilton House emerged as the obvious leader thanks to its great aspect, community atmosphere, and the unique characteristics of the space, where our team will feel welcome as we sustain our exceptional growth and development in the beating heart of Manchester.”
Since we completed its sensitive restoration of the 1960s Seifert-designed building in 2021, Hilton House has regained its former glory and has reached its potential as a community-focused hub bringing leisure and office uses together.
With a fantastic location, right in the heart of the Northern Quarter, and an ethos centred around collaboration, flexibility and wellbeing, we have created an ecosystem where businesses can not only make their spaces their own, but also have the chance to come together and support each other as part of a thriving community.
Paul Shakeshaft, our head of property management, said: “When our restoration of Hilton House began we had the aspiration to create a rich community in and around it.”
“Hilton House demonstrates our commitment to community building, showing our intention to continue the success of the development beyond implementation, by retaining our assets over the long-term with high quality property management, and community engagement to enrich the surrounding neighbourhood.”
