Citibase has shown its confidence in the strength of the local economy with the announcement that it is doubling its presence in Manchester with the launch of a brand new state-of-the-art business hub, Citibase Manchester Old Trafford.
Joining Citibase’s existing centre in the heart of the city on Princess Street, Citibase Manchester Old Trafford is the company’s second business centre in Manchester. Its arrival is set to offer a huge boost to the local economy by providing up to 360 entrepreneurs, start-ups and SMEs with flexible and affordable fully serviced office space.
Situated in the local landmark building Oakland House, the centre has been fully refurbished to a high specification, and features an impressive reception, six passenger lifts and an on-site café. With fantastic transport links and the city centre just five minutes away, it offers customers an incredibly convenient location to operate their businesses from.
Steve Jude, CEO, Citibase commented: “With Manchester at its heart, the northern powerhouse is set to become one of the most exciting driving forces in our country’s new economy. I have been saying for some time that “the world of work has changed forever” and this will be more evident than ever in 2017 as businesses reject the restrictions and ties of long office contracts and search for flexible, affordable work space. Citibase is proud to be a leader in empowering and incubating these SME’s in the North West by providing a home for them to flourish. By creating a flexible, hassle free environment, they can focus on what’s most important – making a success of their businesses and helping create new employment.”
Citibase’s newest business centre is situated on Talbot Road, with the great selection of bars, restaurants and other amenities of Salford Quays nearby, while the city centre is also accessible in just five minutes via two Metrolink stops on its doorstep. It boasts superb road links with both the M60 and M602 just under two miles away, while parking is no problem with ample spaces in a multi-storey car park at the rear of the building. Sports fans will also be able to enjoy all the action and drama in the nearby legendary football and cricket stadiums, which are just moments away.
Now with two locations in Manchester, Citibase can offer businesses in the city two unique options – Citibase Manchester Old Trafford, conveniently located just a short distance from the city centre with great transport connections; and the existing Citibase Manchester in an impressive Grade II listed Victorian building for those businesses wishing to work in the heart of the city centre and be just seconds away from Canal Street and Chinatown.
As with Citibase’s other business centres throughout the UK, Citibase Manchester Old Trafford will offer flexible, short term and affordable contracts. Suites are offered in various sizes, from one person to much larger spaces, making it ideal for businesses at every stage of their development and appealing to SMEs who are often deterred by long term office contracts. Customers will also benefit from high-speed broadband, use of smart meeting room facilities, 24/7 access, personalised call handling, reception and business support services and much more.
Citibase offers fully serviced business centres for cost-conscious SMEs in over 40 locations nationwide. Their unique disruptive business model brings together both clients and customers. Over the last 23 years they have been commissioned by some of the largest and smallest names in the UK property market to help execute a plan for their under-utilised office space.
They provide solutions to property owners, by taking over the management of the building, allowing building owners to generate a cash income from secondary office space with minimum stress whilst providing SME customers with cost-effective office solutions.
Citibase also offers building owners with short-term voids a smart way of enjoying the hassle-free cash which only Citibase can generate by launching one of their unique pop-up business centres. It’s easy-in and easy-out, and Citibase will manage the entire process.
Citibase concentrates on town and city centre locations. Founded in 1993, the business has at its heart the ‘Freedom at Work’ philosophy; a deep-routed commitment to support and nurture cost-conscious SMEs whether they are setting out for the first time or taking bigger steps on the path to growth. Being in a Citibase centre gives SMEs the independence to be freed from expensive rents and rates, inflexible terms, service charges, hidden costs and corporate restrictions. By taking the stress of running a building off business’s hands, Citibase allows SMEs to focus on growing a successful business.
