Henry Boot plans £140m Manchester office block

Construction & Build

Henry Boot development arm HBD is about to submit a planning application for a 200,000 sq ft office scheme within the St John’s District of Manchester City Centre.

The £140m Colloco scheme will be a sixteen-storey building on the site which was formerly home to the LTE Group’s Manchester College before it relocated to its new campus last year.

During the construction phase 850 jobs will be created to build high-quality flexible workspace across all levels with spaces designed to foster collaboration and innovation.

A roof pavilion will feature breakout and events space and access to a landscaped garden terrace with views across the city.

The imminent submission of planning comes as HBD is midway through the development of Island, a 100,000 sq ft net zero carbon, smart-enabled Grade A office scheme on John Dalton Street in Manchester.

Adam Brady, Executive Director at HBD said: “We’re very proud to be bringing forward Colloco, which will provide a future facing workspace solution in the post-Covid era.

“We wanted to create a building that provides a positive impact to Manchester’s thriving community but one which also meets the needs of a modern and progressive work culture. Colloco is a completely different prospect to the sterile and corporate offices of yesteryear.”

The project team includes Arcadis EPR Architects; Asteer Planning Curtins  Hoare Lea and Ramboll.
