Stockport’s latest office building takes shape

20.02.23 4 min read by Ryan Devlin

We came together recently with our partner, Stockport Council and contractor, Galliford Try, to celebrate the latest phase of Stockport Exchange reach its highest point.

We’re creating the £145m Stockport Exchange with the council, which is a key part of Stockport Mayoral Development Corporation’s 130-acre, £500m Town Centre West masterplan.

Currently we’re on site with a 64,000 sq ft office building, which sits next to 1 and 2 Stockport Exchange. Alongside the new office, will be a 399-space multi-storey car park for occupiers, which will feature charging points for electric cars and a living wall. Stockport Exchange is home to a wide variety of businesses from different sectors, including O’Neill Patient Solicitors, musicMagpie, Bask and its most recent addition Community Health and Eyecare (CHEC).

Delivery of the new office and car park was accelerated by a £4.2m funding injection from the government’s Getting Building Fund through Greater Manchester Combined Authority.

Since the partnership began back in 2012, the team has completely transformed the area around Stockport train station with three successful phases already completed, including a 115-bedroom Holiday Inn Express, a 1,000-space NCP multi-story car park, as well as two striking office buildings totalling 120,000 sq ft with ground-floor retail, sat within beautifully landscaped public spaces. This has become a popular place for visitors to enjoy and spend time, with events and pop-up food offerings further adding to the appeal of the area.

Tom Webber, senior development surveyor, said:

 

It’s a fantastic feeling to reach this latest milestone as we continue creating a diverse and well-connected place for business that’s been a catalyst for wider economic growth and regeneration.”
Together with our partners at Stockport Council and Stockport MDC, we’re committed to our collective vision of delivering place-changing, sustainable regeneration that promotes wellbeing and builds brighter futures for all in Stockport.”

Leader of Stockport Council, Cllr Mark Hunter, said: “Stockport Exchange has been immensely popular, and we are responding to increasing demand from the business community for high quality office space in an accessible, town centre.

“We are attracting a diverse mix of tenants and this latest phase will allow even more businesses to take advantage of not only Stockport Exchange but the wider town centre and the £1bn investment currently under way.”

Darren Parker, managing director for Galliford Try Building North West, commented: “Delivering a prestigious commercial development like Stockport Exchange is particularly pleasing for myself, who along with a number of other members of the Galliford Try project team live in Stockport. Seeing the continued investment in the town is exciting and excellent news for the local community.”
