A speculative development by Hardman Estates, Vantage Point is located in the popular Spinningfields district of Manchester. With several new-build office developments within close proximity, the area has been described as the “Canary Wharf of the north”. The developers scored an early success at Vantage Point with Allied Irish Bank (AIB) agreeing to a pre-let in 2008 for 16,000 sq ft of space over 4 floors. The rental details for the 15-year lease were not disclosed.

Commenting on the lease agreement, John Sacco at Sacco Mann said: “We wanted a building that was in a highly visible location, within close proximity of the concentration of solicitors and professional firms already based at Spinningfields. Vantage Point delivers exactly that.”

The building has achieved a BREEAM rating of ‘Very Good’. 31,723 sq ft of vacant floor space remains available to let. Marketing agents are King Sturge and CBRE.
