Bruntwood, commercial property company, has announced that it has attracted three new office customers to 61 Oxford Street, one of its recently developed office properties in Manchester city centre. PHD North has taken 3,000 sq ft, with economists Roger Tym & Partners, and Seven Architects, taking 2,500 sq ft and 1,000 sq ft respectively.

Bruntwood sales director, Andrew Butterworth, said, "These deals come only 3 months after our refurbishment and re-branding of the Manchester office building, which we've owned for over 10 years. We've purposely developed the building so it can accommodate a diverse range of office customers in suites, from 450 to 4,500 sq ft. In doing so, we're giving small to medium sized businesses access to some of the highest quality office space in the city centre at a highly competitive price, all delivered with a level of service that's difficult to find outside our commercial property portfolio."

The former cotton mill, built in 1850, has undergone a complete refurbishment to provide high specification office space in a period environment, over five floors. As well as the open plan offices, the building also includes a brand new reception area, exposed beams, columns and brickwork, as well as fully restored sash windows and wrought iron staircase.

Andrew Timms, partner at the building's agents Edwards & Co. said, "Since its refurbishment, 61 Oxford Street has received much interest from media, marketing and professional firms, resulting in these three new office occupiers. Above and beyond the quality of the office space, this is down to Bruntwood's customer service, their ability to offer small suites and the commercial flexibility in terms of space and cost; their scale means they can offer all of this without compromising on the quality finishes and character features. We continue to talk to interested parties regarding the remaining office space at the building."

The recent deals at 61 Oxford Street are testament to the fact Bruntwood continues to successfully let office space to a range of new customers across its portfolio.

Andrew Butterworth said, "This year we aim to let over 250,000 sq ft of offices in Manchester, and we remain optimistic we will achieve this target. One reason our lettings performance remains positive is our financial security which customers are attracted to this because they can be confident we will continue to maintain and manage their office property and deliver the quality of office product and service they expect."
