Exchange Quay Nearing Completion

Creation of a publicly accessible podium garden at Exchange Quay is nearing completion.

Hunter Real Estate Investment Management is undertaking a £10m refurbishment programme to upgrade the six office buildings that make up Exchange Quay to Grade A specification.

External areas are also being reworked to provide an improved access route and valuable amenity space. Distinctive shelters, seating and substantial raised planting beds designed by Planit-IE are incorporated across the podium landscape, which also forms the entrance approach to three of the buildings.

The works will be completed in Autumn 2015 but the value of investment in the remodeling works is already being realised by Hunter. A flurry of lettings have been completed since the beginning of the year to both new and existing occupiers. These include Sage, GlaxoSmithKline Research & Development, Boxchange Associates, Wurth Electronics, North West Employers, international consultancy RPS and marketing agency K2L.
