Noma buildings in heart of city win planning

To new office buildings designed by AHR at the £800 million Noma development in Manchester have won planning approval.

The buildings, being developed by a Co-operative Group and Hermes Investment Management joint venture, will collectively provide more than 32,500sq m of office space over nine and eleven storeys.

Completion is expected in late 2018.

David Pringle, director of Noma at The Co-operative Group, said: “This is another boost for Noma and for Manchester. There is a growing need for large-floorplate office space which can effectively support the needs of businesses who want to interact and have groups of people together on one floor.”

Dominic Manfredi, director of the Manchester office at AHR Architects, said: “This is a once-in-a-generation project to revitalise a major part of a city centre. With quality, long term regeneration such as Noma we believe Manchester’s position as an emerging global city can only continue to grow.”
