Citibase, one of the UK’s largest operators of fully serviced business centres, has yet again showed confidence in the North West economy with the announcement that it is opening its newest centre, Citibase Warrington Birchwood, in the region.
The launch is Citibase’s second in the area this year and means it has tripled its presence in the North West in 2017, providing a huge boost to local employment. The two new centres, Citibase Warrington Birchwood and Citibase Manchester Old Trafford will provide space for up to 900 workers combined.
With Citibase’s existing centres on Princess Street in central Manchester and the recent addition in Old Trafford, Citibase Warrington Birchwood is the company’s third centre in the North West of England and means it now offers 47 business centres across the UK. The move is seen as an enormous vote of confidence in the region’s economy and welcome news to local entrepreneurs, start-ups and SMEs.
Citibase Warrington Birchwood is located in the iconic Genesis Centre in Birchwood, renowned as one of the best business addresses in the area, and will eventually have the potential to offer up to 30,000 sq ft of office space with capacity to play host to up to 500 workers. Known as the “gateway to the North West”, Birchwood sits just a few miles from the M62 / M6 interchange in a prime position, equidistant between the powerhouses of Manchester and Liverpool.
Steve Jude, CEO, Citibase commented: “As a champion of entrepreneurs, start-ups and SMEs, we know what makes them tick – flexible, no-hassle space from which to run and grow their business. We have entered the dawn of a new era where businesses don’t want to be tied down for the long term – what they do want is a perfect balance of affordability and flexibility in a modern, stress-free work environment. We’re proud that Citibase Warrington Birchwood will provide the workspace for these SMEs, which are lifeblood of the new economy and will help drive employment in the heart of the Northern Powerhouse.’’
