The Challenge:

Kier purchased the entire freehold of this prime central Manchester office scheme from Aberdeen Asset Management.

A highly prominent island site in Manchester’s central business district (CBD) - which will be known as Eleven York Street - is an exceptionally high profile, prime development opportunity and is seen as the final piece of Manchester’s prime space for the Spring Gardens, York Street and Fountain Street area.

The Solution:

The redevelopment delivers a Grade A new build office scheme of 79,165 sq ft (7,355sqm), with floor plates of between 10,211 sq ft (949sqm) and 11,668 sq ft (1,084 sq m), and two retail units at ground floor level totalling 5,274 sq ft (490sqm).

The Impact:

Kier sold the development to Aviva in 2018 and continued to work with them to develop the project, which has been designed by Manchester based AHR.

" We are delighted to be working with Aviva again – we have developed and sold several schemes to Aviva over the years and we are pleased that they identified 11 York Street in Manchester as a piece of prime commercial office space. We are continuing to look for further opportunities in Manchester, across all asset classes and see the area as contributing further growth to our fast expanding plans in the North of England "
