Tech giant Microsoft shall soon begin to relocate 100 of their existing staff members into a new co-working space at the former Bank House building found on the corner of Portland Street and Charlotte Street in Manchester city centre.

Scheduled to move in this month, Microsoft is said to be occupying a workspace on the seventh floor of the newly-launched Neo building, a site that reopened in March following an £8-million overhaul that is described as “Bruntwood’s most evolved workspace to date”.

The 12-storey building features an on-site gym, a large open-air terrace, spacious meeting rooms and multiple open-plan working spaces. Phil Kemp, Chief Commercial Officer of Bruntwood said: “Manchester was of course the birthplace of modern computing in the late 1940s and 1950s so to welcome a true world leader in 21st century technology to our city is not only a perfect fit, but it’s a proud moment for us too.”
