BDP, Piccadilly Basin
Designed by Manchester’s largest architectural practice BDP for their northern HQ, the building offers c. 33,100 sq ft of superb waterside offices. The building was handed over to the tenant in March 2008 and was the first naturally ventilated commercial building in Manchester to achieve the accolade of a BREEAM 2006 rating of Excellent for environmental sustainability.
The building is also home to Manchester city centre’s first “living roof” to support the Basin’s Black Redstart population. The building was sold in June 2009 to an offshore investor based in Luxembourg.
