Q1 rush of leases agreed at one of Manchester’s landmark commercial offices

The team at Manchester International Office Centre (MIOC) has agreed several new tenancies totalling over 7,000 sq ft of space.


Following a refurbishment of one of MIOC’s larger suites, the newly designed offices were under offer before the works were completed. Tenants will have the added benefit of being sited in MIOC’s first decarbonised space.


Martyn Makinson, CEO at FourPointZero, a leading recruitment business focused on the XR and Metaverse, moved into MIOC just after Christmas said: “MIOC appealed to us immediately. It’s like no other commercial building we viewed – it’s modern, spacious and full of natural light. Being a specialist recruiter in the tech industry that has developed exceptional candidates and a global client base, we’re seeing rapid growth.


“This move is a testament to our team’s hard work and dedication; we’re excited to see what the future holds for FourPointZero especially now we’re actively looking for new team members. I’m committed to creating a positive and productive work environment for our employees – something MIOC can help us achieve.”


Liam MacCarthy, director at MIOC investment manager Till AM, said: “We’ve invested into this suite at MIOC and it has provided an immediate return with these individual offices being taken up in a matter of just a few months.


“These suites are included in our first phase of decarbonising MIOC; we’ve removed all gas from this section of the building, replaced the windows and insulated the area. With MIOC being such an historic building, making these significant changes to its carbon footprint is not a simple job. But with the success of this floor, we’ll be investing in and renovating a further 8,000 sq ft suite this year and continuing to add further carbon-neutral credentials to MIOC.”


The other new companies joining MIOC’s thriving business community include logistics and forwarding business, Savino Del Bene,  Jas Aerospace and SRS Recruitment, that are both current tenants that are expanding by doubling their footprint at MIOC.


Situated at a prominent position at the junction of Styal Road on the A555 with easy connections to Manchester Airport, the M56, Metrolink and Heald Green train station. The building was designed by Cruickshank and Seaward in 1953 and offers a level communal space that is never seen in modern buildings. Alongside great facilities, MIOC has a active business community, multiple EV charging spaces, social events throughout the year, gym, café and large communal garden for all tenants.
