Recruitment business upgrades space at Fourways
Real estate advisor Savills, on behalf of Helical, has agreed a new lease to recruitment agency management platform, Hiring Hub, at Fourways in Manchester’s Northern Quarter.
Already subletting space within the building, the firm has agreed a new five-year lease for an additional 2,378 sq ft (221 sq m) of workspace at £26 per sq ft within the scheme.
Located on Hilton Street in the sought-after Northern Quarter area of Manchester city centre, Fourways is a converted Grade II-listed brick building constructed in 1906.
The property now provides characterful office accommodation over ground and five upper floors totalling 59,000 sq ft and is nearing completion of a substantial refurbishment of the atrium and communal space.
Simon Swan, chief executive of Hiring Hub, said: “We’ve long been happy with the location at Fourways but required additional space to accommodate a growing team.
“We’re fortunate this coincided with a stunning refurbishment of the building, which I believe makes it one of the most architecturally-interesting offices, not only in Manchester, but in the country – it’s a place that Hiring Hub is proud to call home.”
Daniel Barnes, associate director in the office agency team at Savills, said: “With the refurbishment nearly complete, Fourways has made its mark as a stand-out office building in the heart of the Northern Quarter.
“This letting to Hiring Hub follows the upsizing of existing occupier RSK earlier in the lockdown, showing that Fourways continues to be in high demand in spite of the current situation.”
William Parry, senior property executive at Helical, said: “We’re delighted that Hiring Hub has made the decision to commit further to Fourways and we look forward to welcoming them to their new suite within the building.
“This is the fourth lease Helical has completed in Manchester since lockdown, demonstrating the resilience of the Manchester office market and its continued appeal to a range of occupiers.”
