BBC appoints LSH to dispose of MediaCity office space
Lambert Smith Hampton (LSH) has been appointed by the BBC to dispose of its leasehold interest at Bridge House, one of three buildings the corporation occupies at MediaCity, following a reappraisal of its space requirements.
The waterfront property provides around 105,000 sq ft of office space across seven floors, with the building available as a whole, or on a floor-by-floor basis.
The high specification of Bridge House – incorporating a mix of open-plan desking, meeting rooms and collaborative space – offers new occupiers a ‘plug and play’ opportunity to start work immediately.
MediaCity is a landmark destination with a thriving digital and media community, with major occupiers in addition to the BBC, which will retain a large presence at the wider scheme at Dock and Quay House, including ITV and the University of Salford.
With a dedicated Metrolink station providing connectivity to the city centre, Manchester Airport and the wider Greater Manchester transport network, Bridge House also has parking available.
In addition to its reputation as a business location, MediaCity and the wider Salford Quays area is a destination for the shopping, theatre, events and entertainment.
Adam Robson, director – transactional services at Lambert Smith Hampton, said: “As one of the most prominent buildings at MediaCity, Bridge House offers an excellent opportunity for a new occupier to take its place in the UK’s leading digital and media hub.
“With a high specification, large floorplates, plug and play capabilities and a waterfront location, we are anticipating significant demand for the space.”
The BBC has committed to leaving Bridge House by spring 2024 in response to changing office space requirements, with the teams currently based there relocating to other buildings within the MediaCity scheme.
