Hilton House is a 35,000 sqft office block in the heart of Manchester's Northern Quarter.
The building was originally constructed in 1965 to a design by renowned architect, Richard Seifert. Over the years, however, the building has fallen into decline and is now largely unoccupied.
We are working with owners, CERT Property Group, and interiors designers, Shelia Bird Group, to redevelop the building to create modern office space targeted at SME and co-working occupiers.
The proposals include the creation of a new entrance to the building’s Hilton Street frontage with the ground floor frontages upgraded as part of the plans. The fourth and fifth floors will also be extended to match the extent of the third floor to create additional high-quality office space.
The proposal will also see the building envelope upgraded, with windows replaced with anodised aluminium and flashings to create the building a distinct, contemporary appearance, while remaining sensitive to the original 1960s optimistic and confident ‘less is more’ design approach.
Internally, the refurbished office space has the potential to provide floor plates of up to 5,400 sq ft when it opens in 2019.
