New deals confirmed for landmark Salford Quays office scheme

Exchange Quay, the 435,000 sq ft office development in Salford Quays, has signed two new tenant agreements for 11,731 sq ft of space.

Phillips & Cohen Associates, a specialised engagement services company and a leader in the deceased account management market, has its UK headquarters at Exchange Quay.

The company has renewed its existing contract ahead of lease expiry, for a further five year term for 7,591 sq ft of space within Building 5.

Analysys Mason, a global consulting and research firm specialising in telecoms, media and technology, has expanded steadily within Exchange Quay for a number of years.

In this latest deal, the company is set to move into Building 8, comprising 4,140 sq ft .

Exchange Quay is one of the largest office developments in the North West with 3,000 people now working from the riverside development.

Acting on behalf of the owner, Ekistics is continuing to invest into Exchange Quay following an initial £10m investment implemented by Hunter.

The owner has upgraded the scheme to Grade A specification, as well as introduced an extensive remodelling of the public realm, added several retail outlets, occupier amenities and opened a Kids Planet children’s day nursery.

Mark Canning, director at Canning O’Neill, said: “We are delighted to confirm two deals at Exchange Quay. The deal with Analysys Mason emphasises the scheme’s commitment to service the ever-changing needs of its tenants.

“In addition, the deal with Phillips & Cohen Associates is a prime example of satisfied tenants keen to renew their contract at the earliest convenience, and we are pleased to confirm an additional five year contract with the firm.”
