Converted Victorian mill welcomes two new tenants

The interior of Lowry Mill

Two new tenants have moved into a restored Victorian mill in Swinton.

Lowry Mill is now home to IT support and technology provider IT Lab, who has taken 10,000 sq ft of space, and insolvency specialists Creditfix who has taken 4,500 sq ft.

In both cases the design and construction of the suites were carried out by the landlord, Vanguard Holdings, with the new suites being occupied within ten weeks of terms being agreed.

Joint agents Cushman & Wakefield and Canning O’Neil acted on behalf of Vanguard Holdings.

Lauren Steele, director of business services for IT Lab, said: “We are delighted with our new accommodation at Lowry Mill.

“We received excellent support from the team at Vanguard and are hugely impressed with their efficiency and attention to detail.”

Built in 1883, Lowry Mill is a former Victorian spinning Mill which was acquired by Vanguard Holdings in 2008 and extensively modernised to provide office suites and is now 75% occupied.

Amenities included an on-site gym, conference room facilities, car parking and restaurant.

The final phase of the development, 22,000 sq ft of space is due to come on to the market in June.

Lowry Mill is located less than one mile from J16 of the M60 and a short walk from Swinton Train Station.

Other occupiers include Regus, Influential Products, Esay Solutions, Dataspire, and Leisurewear International.

Andrew Crabtree of Cushman & Wakefield’s office agency team in Manchester said: “These recent transactions endorse the quality and amenity of Lowry Mill.

“It reflects the strong demand in the location and Vanguard’s approach of creating a bespoke functional office space while retaining the attractive character of the building.”
