Workspace deal for The Hive

MSO Workspace has taken 8,500 sq ft at The Hive in Manchester’s Lever Street.

The company, which already has serviced office space in London and Birmingham, has agreed a 10-year lease with landlord Argent.

It plans to cater for 120 people and hopes to be up and running by the end of the year.

Managing director Steve Lyons said: “We decided we’d like to open a facility in Manchester and the Hive was one of the first buildings we looked at. The space works incredibly well and location with its easy transport connections, coupled with the vibrancy of the Northern Quarter makes it the perfect fit for us. We’re looking forward to opening.”

Angela Fielding, senior projects director at Argent said: “We’re delighted to welcome MSO Workspace to The Hive. Their offer lends itself to the building, and as we saw with the success of the Classroom there is a great deal of demand for flexible working environments in Manchester.”

Edwards & Co acted for Argent.
