Flexible workspace operator agrees space at 100 Embankment
Flexible workspace operator x+why has agreed to take more than 28,000 sq ft of space at 100 Embankment in Salford.
This will be x+why’s first workspace location in the north joining the company’s seven existing operations across London and Birmingham.
100 Embankment is a 166,000 sq ft, 9-storey, Grade A office building which has been delivered by Ask Real Estate, Richardson and Tristan Capital, in a joint venture with Salford City Council.
B Corp certified x+why has taken space across the ground and first floor of the building.
Jamie Hills, development director at Ask Real Estate, said: “x+why is a superb operator whose values and strong brand are a great fit with Embankment and their offer will really enhance the building and support a community for all future occupiers.
“We are proud to welcome them to the Greengate neighbourhood which has benefitted from significant investment and regeneration in recent years.
“Flexible workspace operators are thriving alongside more traditional occupiers as businesses, both large and small, are looking for increased collaboration and the flexibility to expand and contract as circumstances change.”
Rupert Dean from x+why added: “We chose 100 Embankment because it’s in a great location and has a wealth of amenities right on the doorstep for our members.
“Our experienced management team is looking forward to starting work on creating superb spaces for the next generation of office occupiers.
“There is a real opportunity right now for businesses to embrace the changing role of the office and we’re looking forward to bringing something dynamic and exciting to Salford and Manchester.”
The fit out is due to be completed and the flexible workspace open to occupiers this autumn.
Cushman & Wakefield and CBRE advised on the letting.
