MediaCom North is to move to a new £10m office building in Spinningfields, with construction expected to start shortly.

It will take sole occupancy of the 5 storey, 17,000sq ft office block, which is being built by Allied London. The plot of land is on Hardman Street opposite Wagamama.

The agency has been expanding massively over the last 3 years, with staff numbers doubling to 150 and further growth expected.

“Number 1 Hardman Street represents the next stage in our mission to attract the very best staff and to be the best agency to work, in Manchester and the North. We’ve got really exciting plans for the building’s interior design and can’t wait to see our vision become a reality over the coming months,” said Paul Wheeler, chief operating officer of MediaCom North.

Prolific North understands that the Spinningfields development was on a shortlist of two. The other option would have been the Orange Building at MediaCityUK, where ITV is based.
