New office for HURST at Spaces Deansgate

"As we adapt to new ways of doing business, the co-working proposition suits us perfectly"
Simon Brownbill

Accounting and business advisory firm HURST has agreed a three-year deal for a new Manchester city centre base at flexible workspace venue Spaces Deansgate.

HURST has taken office space on the third floor, with further access to co-working areas and meeting rooms. The office overlooks Deansgate and The John Rylands Library.

HURST chose Spaces’ 125 Deansgate site after a year-long pilot of the co-working model at another site in the city centre.

Spaces Deansgate, a 12-storey building spanning 120,000 sq ft, is located next to the Spinningfields district. It opens in July and will be the largest Spaces centre in the UK. It is one of over 400 Spaces centres worldwide.

HURST’s agreement means its staff will be able to work at Spaces centres across Britain and globally.

Simon Brownbill, a HURST partner and director of practice development, said: “We wanted to maintain a grade A city centre presence with maximum flexibility and chose Spaces Deansgate because of its central location and excellent facilities.

“As we all adapt to new ways of doing business, the co-working proposition suits us perfectly.”

HURST, which has its main office in Stockport and a presence in London, specialises in advising owner-managed and entrepreneurial businesses turning over £5m-£50m a year across all sectors.

Sian Hindle, area manager for Manchester for Spaces, which is part of International Workplace Group, said: “We're delighted to welcome HURST to our flagship Spaces, 125 Deansgate building. The building is the UK's largest Spaces centre offering 12 storeys of serviced offices in a prominent position in the heart of the city centre.”

The letting agent was Edwards & Co.
