We are delighted to see that our redevelopment of the Rylands building in Manchester has been so positively received and widely shared across prominent regional and national press.

Our recent update has reached up to 15 million unique readers and shares further information about the redevelopment of the building. This includes details regarding the layout of office, retail, and leisure space, as well as the emphasis we are placing on creating a sustainable foundation for the project.

Sustainability is at the core of the development, and this is exemplified in the piece with benews. Rylands will be designed to achieve net zero status, and once the renovation works are complete, it is hoped that the development will achieve certification for the construction according to BREEAM excellent or NABERS 5. This will place Rylands as one of the top new constructions for sustainability, encompassing net zero carbon, health and social impact, biodiversity and more.

The CGIs created for the iconic development were also well received, as noted in a number of outlets including ilovemanchester. The images showcase how the exterior of the property will be given a new lease of life, with particular emphasis on the main entranceway and how the four-storey extension will look.

Just some of the further leading regional press for the recent update was shared in Manchester Evening News, About Manchester and Insider North West.

We are also delighted to see the coverage we have received in the national press, with sites such as Head Topics, Construction Enquirer and Property EU sharing the update.

The transformation of Rylands into a modern mixed-use development will breathe new life into one of Manchester’s most iconic buildings, creating a space that will be both functional and visually stunning. The Rylands building will comprise high-quality office space, a shopping arcade, and prestigious leisure area. We look forward to sharing further updates with you soon!
