As part of a drive to expand in the North West of England, WPP has agreed to a 15-year lease for a new ‘campus’ building in Manchester’s Enterprise City, a redevelopment which includes the site of the former Granada Studios.
BDG architecture + design will be designing the interior of the building which will be a flexible and inclusive working environment with well-being at the heart of its design.
The 82,000 sqf campus will include a roof terrace, café, bar and events spaces to support WPP’s community, school, start-up and SME partnerships, courses and events.
Karen Blackett, UK country manager at WPP, said:
“WPP campuses not only give our people amazing, inspiring spaces in which to work, learn and create but provide our clients with easier access to our expertise. The UK is our second largest market, and by building a brand-new home for our agencies and a creative hub for the city, we’re investing in both our future and in the future economy of Manchester.”
