New Bailey Street, Manchester, M3 5FS
Office space from:
120–35,000 sq ft


Located on New Bailey Street on the banks of the River Irwell in Manchester city centre, Riverside is a cluster of five commercial office buildings boasting the unique proposition of a self-contained business park on the edge of the city centre’s core business district.

During 2011 and 2012, a £5m refurbishment scheme has created two new reception areas, a redesign of public realm space and allowed a full upgrade of the floor plates, providing an impressive office building for both staff and clients alike.

Over 1.5 acres of public space and a private courtyard are available for your staff to use and relax in. Careful use of water features, sculptures, planting and new timber-decked seating areas has created a sanctuary within the city, making Riverside an attractive, tranquil and pleasant place to work. The revamped landscape in urban surroundings means your business will be isolated away from the noise and disruption of the city, yet still retain all the benefits of a city centre office without the premium city centre price tag.

With floor plates of up to 17,800 sq ft, Riverside offers a scale of office space rarely found in the refurbished city centre office market. The size of these floors provide an extensive range of space plan options, resulting in increased spatial efficiency and reduced sq footage costs.

For the smaller occupier there is also a small suite scheme, which is ideal for start up companies offering low overheads and minimal up front costs.

Riverside’s edge of city location on the ring road also makes it an ideal location for customers with a combination of city-centre and regionally based clients. The Lowry Hotel and Salford Central train station are directly opposite .

Flexible open plan suites means office space can be taken from 500 sq ft to 17,800 sq ft and the development borders a secure courtyard that is exclusively for customers use. 

The flexibility to change and grow

Should you need to expand into bigger offices or relocate to a new location, we're more than happy to expand your space or move you to other premises within our portfolio with a simple rework of your existing lease. It’s this understanding of how business works that makes our customer retention rate more than twice the national average.

Interesting facts

Previously owned by the Manchester Evening News, Riverside is made up of five buildings of which four are named after printing typefaces Aldine, Baskerville, Cloister and Delphian. The building was built in the late 60's and early 70’s and the architects who designed the complex are now customers of ours in the fifth building - Executive Suite. Riverside was proud to receive an award for being a great example of the architecture of its period.
