Digital firm takes three-year lease at city centre’s Chancery Place

Chancery Place

Real estate firm, OBI, has let 2,148 sq ft of Grade A office space to AND Digital on the 11th floor of Chancery Place on a three-year lease to accommodate its Manchester-based ‘club’ which will be the new home of its Cloud team, Da Vinci.

AND Digital accelerates the development of world-class digital capabilities. The digital enablement partner for global organisations including BA, Diageo, Whitbread, Taylor & Francis and the Telegraph Group, empowers organisations with the ability to build digital products and grow their internal capability along the way.

The company said it is on a mission to close the world’s digital skills gap and to achieve this it blends technical craft and digital product expertise with a learning and development ethos.

Owned by NFU Mutual, Chancery Place provides a fully fitted and furnished Grade A workspace that has recently undergone refurbishment works to the ground floor reception area. A new communal roof terrace has also been created on level 14 with views across Manchester.

Jamie Smith, people lead at AND Digital, said: “Chancery Place is an amazing space for the team at Cloud da Vinci. We’re really pleased with how the space has come together and can’t wait to use the terrace next summer.”

Andrew Cowell, transactions and asset management at OBI, said: “Chancery Place is in a great location in the heart of Manchester’s business district. The building offers high quality Grade A workspace and the recent investment into the reception and new roof terrace for occupiers has made the building a perfect fit for AND Digital who were looking for a high class office space in the heart of the city.”

Alex Pocock, asset manager at NFU Mutual, said: “The letting is testament to the quality of the recent reception refurbishment and the creation of a communal roof terrace on level 14, which have significantly improved the building’s offering and have resulted in a substantial increase in enquiries.”

Amenities surrounding Chancery Place include Piccolino Caffe Grande, Flight Club Manchester, Six by Nico, Grand Pacific and Kala Bistro, with local transport links such as St Peter’s Square tram station and Piccadilly Gardens all within walking distance.
