Govt signs for 130,000 sq ft civil service hub at First Street

An exciting time for First Street and the surrounding areas in Manchester City Centre today as The Government Property Agency (GPA) signs a c12,000 square metre site with us and our JV partner, Richardson.

Thousands of civil servants will move to a state of the art new building on the estate from 2025.

John Hughes, Ask Real Estate Managing Director, said:

“Attracting the GPA to the estate, further establishes First Street as one of the most sought after business destinations in the region. We have worked over a number of years to create a community and a neighbourhood with aspiring amenity and established talent. This news will enable us to realise and progress our ambition to accommodate 10,000 jobs by 2028 and create a sustainable urban campus.”

The GPA First Street Hub is in the heart of Manchester and only a few minutes walk from Oxford Road and Deansgate stations. The hub will be designed to be class-leading, meeting inclusive and accessible.
