Located in Manchester, United Kingdom, One St. Peter’s Square was designed by Glenn Howells Architects. Planning approval for the redevelopment of Elisabeth House in Manchester, England was granted yesterday. The building will now be transformed into a 270,000 sq ft office building, known as One St. Peter’s Square.
The planning application was submitted to the Council in November 2009 following a public exhibition held in October 2009. The 270,000 sq ft BREEAM Excellent (sustainability standard) building will incorporate office floorplates of up to 22,500 sq ft, as well as flexible cooling strategies for occupiers. The scheme will include an active mix of uses at ground floor level, with cultural space for public exhibitions, as well as a stunning, double height reception, offering panoramic views across the proposed redeveloped St Peter’s Square, refurbished Central Library and Town Hall extension. The team at One St Peter’s Square includes architect Glenn Howells Architects, building services consultant Hoare Lea, structural engineers Tier and planning consultant GVA Grimley. GVA Grimley and Savills are joint agents for the scheme.
