First letting for Macclesfield office scheme

Posted on by John Cronin

A first letting has been secured for a speculative office redevelopment in Macclesfield, Cheshire.

Commercial property developers Quorum Property have let the 1,734 sq ft fourth floor of their Macclesfield Exchange building (pictured) in the centre of the town. Claims management company CollectaCase has agreed to take the space and is to relocate from nearby offices.

The Macclesfield Exchange building is adjacent to Quorum’s Castle House, a converted warehouse that is now used as a 68-bedroom Travelodge. Macclesfield Exchange is a converted mill building that offers 10,000 sq ft of office space over five floors. Suites are available to let from 900 sq ft and largest floor plates are 2,050 sq ft. The first, second and third floors are available to let. The speculative scheme was completed in September, 2010. The quoted rental price is £15 / sq ft.

Macclesfield Exchange is not the only significant town-centre building currently available in the Macclesfield office market. Agents Colliers International have been instructed to market the former headquarters of the Cheshire Building Society. The 42,000 sq ft building on Castle Street has been put up for sale although a letting might be considered. The building has existing planning consent for use as offices. A guide price has not been disclosed.

Commenting on the building, Rupert Barron, the director of offices at Colliers Manchester said: “We’re very confident that this impressive building will be of great interest to businesses seeking a purpose-built head office or a centrally-located building property of prominence that can be adapted to meet their particular requirements.”
