Touch down for Hainan Airlines at Bridgewater House, Manchester

16 June 2016

Cording Real Estate Group, represented by international real estate advisor Savills, has let office space at Bridgewater House on Whitworth Street, Manchester to Hainan Airlines.

The Chinese firm has agreed a new five-year lease for 2,100 sq ft (195 sq m) at the Grade II-listed building and will pay a rent of £16.50 per sq ft (£178 per sq m). 

Bridgewater House offers 180,000 sq ft (16,722 sq m) of high quality office accommodation across 10 storeys and still features many of its original characteristics including cast iron columns and exposed brickwork.  On the ninth floor, 17,000 sq ft (1,579 sq m) of open plan office space has recently been refurbished and there are further plans to reform and extend the reception area.

Daniel Barnes, associate in the office agency team at Savills, comments: “This landmark building combines contemporary business space with original features and a very well-connected location.  We are pleased to have completed this deal with Hainan Airlines and look forward to securing additional occupiers for the building.”

Hainan Airlines was unrepresented.  Savills is joint letting agent at the property with OBI.
