An iconic 1960s building in Manchester regenerated by CERT into a true work/leisure lifestyle location in the centre of Manchester’s Northern Quarter.
- Ideally located
- Unique, striking design features
- Fantastic amenities
Designed and built by controversial architect Richard Seifeit who was shaping the London skyline, this landmark of Manchester’s Northern Quarter has been untouched since it’s construction in the 1960s.
It has always been our intention in the acquisition of this site to breath new life into the famous Hilton House and adds value to the Northern Quarter. A site purposely built in the ‘swinging 60s’ to be the home of Manchester Polytechnic’s lighting and drama department, the site has throughout the decades been a hub of art and fashion. Redesigned with a nod to the building’s heritage, keys features such as the breathtaking staircase and parquet flooring throughout will be restored and juxtaposed with new additions such as the stunning floating oversized steel reception desk and iguzzini inspired wall lighting. Air conditioning, floor to ceiling windows and Tenant shower and changing facilities will upgrade the space whilst ceiling will be stripped back to exposed brickwork and terracotta tiles. We will retain the artworks at either side of the building which was created as part of the Cities of Hope project in 2016 and furthermore celebrates these striking pieces by telling the story around their creation and concept.
With an extension to the upper two floors, the site will offer 37,000 sq ft of high-quality contemporary office space.
