The Mailbox, located on the A6 in Stockport town centre within the former Royal Mail Sorting Office, has been redeveloped and transformed by developer Rise Homes to create stunning and contemporary Apartments, Offices and Restaurant Unit.
Originally the street level office space was intended to be let to a single large commercial tenant, however in response to demand for smaller, Covid-19 secure office spaces with meeting rooms for occasional use, the commercial space has been re-designed. To meet the needs of Stockport’s SME Businesses, each office space is fully network connected and furnished with contemporary furnishings.
Nigel Rawlings, CEO of Rise Homes says
“We have all been challenged with the events of 2020 and the new world of working from home. We realised that business could work well remotely, however may still need an office, albeit smaller, where staff might work from on a rota basis and that still allows for teams and clients to get together when required in larger meeting spaces. We have created lockable, individual office spaces, starting with two desks, ready for small business occupants with broadband, telephone and IT connectivity ready and waiting. There’s a reception and parking available. We hope that the offices will help local businesses to find a new way of working, with reduced overheads and flexible terms to help them bounce back and grow.”
The Mailbox, on Exchange Street in Stockport, offers 117 one and two bedroom fully furnished apartments for rent, commercial office spaces for small and medium sized businesses, restaurant unit and serviced apartments for business travellers.
The development features a wonderful living wall, a fantastic open atrium and even a roof garden where occupiers can enjoy far reaching views. With some of the best transport links within walking distance or a quick drive and with Stockport’s new Exchange area within walking distance, The Mailbox is in high demand as a place to live and work.
Developers Rise Homes, in partnership with Cityheart, have also been selected to deliver the residential scheme alongside construction of Stockport’s new transport interchange.
