Plans in for next two buildings at Manchester NOMA

Developer MEPC aims to set a new city benchmark for sustainability, wellbeing and smart connectivity with the next phase of its northern gateway regeneration scheme.

The planned buildings, 2 and 3 Angel Square, have been designed by architect Cartwright Pickard and will complement the landmark 1 Angel Square, and 4 Angel Square, which is due to be completed in early 2023.

Planned to be net zero carbon operational energy, the building design is targeting BREEAM Outstanding and a five-star NABERS rating.

Other features include: a potential rooftop restaurant, garden terraces including a water feature, a piano nobile terrace overlooking Angel Square and lower and upper ground floor commercial retail uses.

Dan Hyde, Development Director at MEPC, said: “We’re in a time where having sector-leading sustainability credentials matters not just to investors and funders, but to occupiers too.

“The next generation of employees are more sustainably conscious than ever before, and providing them with the most sustainable and user-friendly working environment with access to green space, can become the important differentiator. At 2 and 3 Angel Square, we’ll be delivering exactly that.” 

Standing 14 storeys in height 2 Angel Square will deliver 197,926 sq ft of office space and a further 17,200 sq ft of potential commercial space on the top floor. 3 Angel Square will be 13 storeys, delivering 241,531 sq ft of Grade A office space and 22,690 sq ft of commercial space.
