Three Piccadilly Place
Located within the city centre and the Piccadilly Regeneration area, Piccadilly Place is a mixed use development of 97,000 square metres comprising offices, hotel, residential apartments, shopping, food and drink over three levels of underground parking. The gateway site creates a new entrance to Manchester whether arriving by train or by car from the South.
The masterplan augments existing routes around and through the site with the creation of a new pedestrian footbridge connecting to Piccadilly Station. Austin-Smith:Lord’s masterplan is realised through buildings by several architects including our own Three Piccadilly Place, 250,000 sqft of speculative office space clad in a copper zinc alloy.
Austin-Smith:Lord has risen to the challenge of this complex city centre project, coordinating the work of six architects and various artists within their overall scheme. They have responded to the various interests of our joint landowners, Manchester City Council and Greater Manchester Passenger Transport Executive; Planning and Building Control and Council Access Officers, amongst others.
We continue to be impressed with the commitment and service that Austin-Smith:Lord has and continues to provide.
