“With our focus on creativity, collaboration and inclusion, we want to create the best space in the city for innovation – connecting engineering to our customers and also to the local community, through our initiatives to support education and develop an increasingly diverse digital workforce.”
Jourdan Rajwan, investment manager at Schroder Real Estate, added: “This latest signing cements the positioning of No.1 Spinningfields as the top office space in Manchester that appeals to high quality, knowledge-based technology and professional services occupiers.
“We see Manchester as a major opportunity for growth and are committed to bringing world-class tenants to the city.”
