Construction begins on global transport hub at Manchester Goods Yard

Construction has officially begun on the new, 20,000m2 global transport hub for anchor tenant at the St John’s Quarter development in Manchester.

The development will be the second largest office building worldwide for, and will house the company’s base for ground transport products (which includes the brand). Drawing on the input of staff members, the design will create an enjoyable, state-of-the-art headquarters building for the digital technology giant, and will provide a benchmark for high-quality workspace in the city.

The design for the wider Manchester Goods Yard development provides a total of 29,000m2 of workspace, 3,000m2 of retail / commercial uses and 2,600m2 of independent work studio space across four linked building blocks.

Manchester Goods Yard will become the fulcrum of Enterprise City at St. John’s, a new 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.

It is expected that the new Manchester headquarters building, which will be capable of accommodating up to 3,000 people, will be completed in 2021.
