The building is surrounded by canals on three sides so all of the commercial spaces benefit from a fantastic waterside setting. Situated on the ground floor the commercial space offers 5,457 sq ft of studio/office shell space giving you the flexibility to create the work place you've always wanted. The largest unit of 6,266 sq ft provides an excellent opportunity for a bar/restaurant, with the added benefit of a large external terrace next to the canal edge.
All of the spaces are flexible in size and arrangement and other uses may be acceptable (subject to planning). Parking spaces are available in the underground car park. Located in New Islington, only a short walk into Manchester city centre with Piccadilly train station about a 10-15 minute stroll away. The New Islington tram stop opposite Chips now serves the area as part of the Metrolink expansion.
New Islington has its very own health centre, as well as its own park and marina, complete with canal boat moorings. Chips also provides 142 apartments on the upper floors with homes available to buy, rent or through shared ownership.
Chips isn't your average building. Designed by Will Alsop it's a bit of a one off and is one of the most significant buildings in New Islington, Manchester. Overlooking canals on three sides, there is an apartment type to suit your living needs.
Many apartments have folding internal doors allowing you to be flexible with the space. Every apartment has some outside space, with either use of the communal roof terrace or in some cases a private balcony.
