Stockport Council and Muse, a national placemaker, have proudly announced the successful completion of 3 Stockport Exchange, the latest phase of development at the North West’s most accessible business location.
This impressive office building spans 64,000 sq ft and boasts a range of features, including a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating and an energy efficiency rating of ‘A’. It also provides facilities for sustainable commuting, such as cycle racks, showers, lockers, and EV charging points. Additionally, there is a breathtaking communal roof terrace offering panoramic views, perfect for client events or simply taking a moment to enjoy some fresh air.
The office units within the building are efficient and adaptable, ranging from 7,226 sq ft to 11,384 sq ft, catering to a variety of businesses. HURST, a leading UK accountancy firm, has already secured the entire top floor suite, becoming the first occupier of 3 Stockport Exchange. They will join a thriving business community that includes BASF, Industrials REIT, Stagecoach, and musicMagpie, all based in the fully occupied 1 and 2 Stockport Exchange buildings.
Cllr Colin MacAlister, Cabinet Member for Economy and Regeneration at Stockport Council, expressed his excitement about the achievement, highlighting the success of Stockport Exchange and the growing demand for high-quality office space. He also mentioned the town center’s ongoing transformational projects, including the Transport Interchange, Weir Mill, and Stockroom, which are set to be completed this year. With improved connectivity and amenities on their doorstep, occupiers can fully enjoy everything the town center has to offer.
Tom Webber, senior development manager at Muse, celebrated the completion of 3 Stockport Exchange as a significant milestone. He emphasized the establishment of a thriving business hub in Stockport, attracting top-notch companies like HURST. Looking ahead, Muse is already working on the design process for the fifth phase and is updating the masterplan for the remaining phases in collaboration with architects Sheppard Robson. Before submitting a planning application for the final phases, there will be a public consultation to gather feedback from existing occupiers and the local community.
The Stockport Exchange development, valued at £145 million, is part of Stockport’s Town Centre West £500 million regeneration masterplan. It is being delivered by Stockport Mayoral Development Corporation (MDC), alongside public and private partners. This 130-acre site aims to bring over 4,000 new homes, major transport and infrastructure improvements, Grade A office space, and new leisure spaces and amenities to the town center.
Once fully completed, the wider Stockport Exchange development will offer up to 375,000 sq ft of office space and 28,000 sq ft of commercial retail and leisure floor space.
