Bruntwood gains planning approval for 'The Alberton'
The current Alberton House on St. Mary’s Parsonage will be replaced with a striking 18-storey office building, housing the UK’s highest workspace pool and capable of competing on the world stage.
The approval marks the evolution of the firm’s Pioneer offering, with the building’s ‘workplace revolutionised’ ethos embedding holistic wellbeing into daily working lives.
The Alberton’s people-centric approach represents Bruntwood’s aims to attract new businesses and talent to Manchester, encouraging further inward investment by elevating the city’s workspace offering.
The development will prompt considerable job creation across building management, hospitality provision and customer expansion, estimated to support 1,740 full time employees and an annual GVA contribution of £131 million.
Designed by EPR Architects and occupying the historic site of Manchester’s first gas works, The Alberton represents the city’s industrial past in a contemporary aesthetic, with nods to its industrial heritage throughout the building’s architecture. It is set to complete towards the end of 2025, with works due to begin early next year.
