PLOT 9 FIRST
STREET

Introducing the next phase of development here at First Street, Plot 9 will be another stunning addition to our top quality office portfolio. Offering occupiers 290,000 sq ft of high-specification office, retail and leisure space, the building will set a new benchmark for quality in the city.

next generation office

Designed by architects Jon Matthews Associates, the Grade A office scheme will provide ground floor amenities and 10 upper floors of open plan and flexible office space, all complemented by integrated winter gardens, and extensive landscaping and public realm works.

The result will be one of Manchester’s finest office buildings designed to comfortably accommodate the changing needs of 21st century businesses and their staff.

SPECIFICATION

Whilst the Grade A building will be BCO compliant, there will be lots of other associated benefits from co-working spaces to winter gardens on every floor, to studio space, outdoor terraces and a large open cycle hub.

BCO Compliant specification
  • Built to an occupation density of 1.8m2
  • Exposed service finish to the ceiling (floor to ceiling height 3.76m with exposed services)
  • Raised Floor 150mm
  • Four Pipe Fan coil system controlling heating, cooling and fresh air requirement
  • Dedicated indoor loading bay
  • Toilets designed as super loos
  • Eight Hybrid Destination controlled lifts

 

Reception

The reception provides a sequence of space that is intended to be dramatic and functional together.  It features a triple height cutback in the floors providing views into the basement cycle hub and first floor above whilst spilling into a co-working space creating a hive of activity.

 

Floorplates

The building will provide the largest and most efficient deliverable floorplate available in the Manchester market.  The 30,000 sq ft floorplate has just three internal columns, arranged around a central core with multiple entrance points to allow sub division for four suites per floor.

Winter Gardens

Each floor will also benefit from private Winter Gardens providing further amenity space within the building.  These gardens which provide visual, social and working amenity on the floors, can be used for a multitude of purposes, as alternative working environments or as collaborative breakout spaces.

 

Roof Terrace

The top floor of the building provides a communal outdoor terrace off a small indoor pavilion space to be used by all occupiers of the building. The terraces are highly flexible and easy to adapt for social and business events or to offer a refreshing change of scenery for meetings and individual working.

 

Cycle Hub

The building will feature one of the biggest cycle hub facilities in Manchester with benefits including:

  • storage of 270 cycles
  • 270 lockers
  • 27 showers
  • 2 drying rooms
  • cycle maintenance

Sustainability

This will be one the most sustainable and technologically SMART buildings in the UK, built in accordance with WELL guidelines meaning our sustainability and wellness strategy across the building ensures it is environmentally responsive to meet market demands.

 

BREEAM

We are committed as a minimum to achieving BREEAM Excellent standard with an EPC Rating B.

 

CUNDALL

Our sustainability strategy for the building is being conducted with our consultant, Cundall.  Some of the options we are looking to implement are:

  • Early adoption of the Greater Manchester Spacial Framework which aims for all buildings to be net zero carbon by 2028.
  • Use of battery technology to take the pressure off the National Grid Peak demand.
  • Designing for Climate Change.
  • Use of recycled materials in construction and reduction of plastic use.
SMART Buildings

Working with Smartspaces, Plot 9 will be one of the smartest and most sustainable buildings outside of London.  The installation of a smart platform will provide softer services for occupiers including a community via a building social platform as well as the harder services such as access into the building and energy saving through building intelligence.

 

Cycle Score

Cyclescore provides assessment and accreditation for an office building’s cycle friendliness.  Our current score in the design process is Platinum which is the highest level.

 

WiredScore

We know that internet connectivity is essential to the tenant experience and have therefore commissioned WiredScore which provides definitive standards for digital connectivity.  We are on target to be accredited Wired Certified Platinum.
