Construction begins on state-of-the-art Booking.com headquarters at Manchester Goods Yard

Construction has begun on Manchester Goods Yard, a new office building for anchor tenant Booking.com, as part of the St John’s Development in Manchester city centre.

Manchester Goods Yard will provide a total of 31,000m2 of commercial space, including 28,000m2 of workspace and 3,000m2 of retail space across three interlinked building blocks.

The development will become a new global headquarters for Booking.com, who have taken 20,000m2. The building will create an enjoyable, state-of-the-art facility for up to 3,000 people, and will provide a benchmark for high-quality, flexible workspace in the city.

Manchester Goods Yard is set to become the fulcrum for Enterprise City at St. John’s, a new digital media technology hub which will be home for a mix of start-up and multi-corporation creative industries. The ultra-modern, flexible workspaces will be supplemented by a mix of café bars, restaurants and leisure facilities, with the aim of creating a vibrant neighbourhood in which to live, work, shop and relax.

Manchester Goods Yard is expected to be completed in Q1 of 2021.
