Glenbrook, the developers behind STOK, have announced their expansion to new headquarters on Albert Square in Manchester city centre.
The property firm has moved from Clarence House to Bruntwood Work’s Union after increasing its headcount in recent months. Glenbrook now employs over 20 people across its development and investment teams. The business has taken 4,618 sq ft on a 10 year lease.
Over the last 12 months, Glenbrook has completed over £75 million of investment transactions and has a development pipeline in excess of £800 million to be delivered in the next three years, including STOK in the former M&S building in Stockport town centre. Once complete, STOK will bring 58,000 sq ft of modern and flexible office space to the heart of the town centre.
Speaking about the move, Ian Sherry, director at Glenbrook, commented:
“With the significant uplift in activity on both sides of the business, we have simultaneously scaled up our team to deal with all aspects of project delivery. At Glenbrook, we have always prided ourselves on having a strong company culture and this new, modern and open plan workspace will support the collaborative way in which we work as a team and with our extended partners.”
Benn Dickinson, commercial Manager at Bruntwood Works added:
“Union offers a blend of high-quality, flexible workspace, wellness facilities, breakout spaces and coffee shop by Ditto, all in the heart of the city centre, making it an ideal fit for Glenbrook. We have successfully created a collaborative ethos at Union, and are proud to call it Bruntwood’s home too. We will work closely with Glenbrook as they move into their new workspace and look forward to seeing them round the building.”
