Scheme Description

£7 million, 49,000 sq ft landmark speculative office building for HBG Properties on Wellington Road South in Stockport.

On the site of the former Cannon Cinema, the proposed development will have a prominent frontage onto the main A6, and create a new gateway to the town centre. Setting a new benchmark for office design in Stockport, the striking contemporary building is expected to be the first there to receive an ‘Excellent’ BREEAM rating.

The building is conceived as a glass pavilion, with the elevation to the A6 animated by the use of polished stainless vertical steel brise soleil – which provides both the architectural signature of the building and an appropriate environmental response to this south west facing façade.

Providing four upper floors of prime Grade A office space with a total net area of 46,000 sq ft, it will form a key part of the “Future Stockport” strategy, and the wider £500 million regeneration of the town. A double-storey reception space faces onto St Peter’s Square, creating both a destination business address and an interactive backdrop to the square itself. On the upper floors the placement of the primary core allows for maximisation of space and light, and the set-back top floor creates an aspirational boardroom offering spectacular views across the regenerating town centre.
