Denton Corker Marshall’s third project in Manchester gains planning permission 

Denton Corker Marshall has won planning permission for a new office building in Manchester for Bruntwood Limited. Located at the strategic Mosley Street / York Street junction, the project comprises 10,000 sq m of office space over 12 upper floor levels with an active ground floor retail space. The development acts as a landmark gateway to the Mosley Street corridor and Bruntwood’s evolving New York Street project. The design sets out to create a dynamic impact at cityscape level. Its architectural form consists of two-storey glass and metal elements which give the illusion of ‘sliding’ in and out of the main building envelope. These ‘sliding boxes’ build up the massing of the building and give a physical impression of ‘turning the corner’ thus creating a greater perceived link between the streets.
