The joint venture partners* of Airport City Manchester have launched an Embracing a Changing Future Prospectus and are asking for stakeholder feedback on their aspirations for delivering positive, long-lasting impacts for the economy, local communities and the environment.
Produced in collaboration with Hillbreak and Creative Concern, the Prospectus lays out a vision for a world-class, multi-business campus, where occupiers create, trade, learn and collaborate, driven by commercial endeavour, social purpose and the opportunity to translate corporate ambition into realised local impact and value. It describes an Airport City community that is united by the spirit of ambition and innovation, as well as the commitment of the joint venture partners and their Development Manager to deliver outstanding buildings, spaces and services. By creating a vibrant, healthy, environmentally-positive setting, together with brilliant career, learning and training opportunities for local people, Airport City Manchester stands to be a genuine flagship of the Northern Powerhouse, supporting commercial success in a rapidly changing and highly connected world.
The Embracing a Changing Future vision is built around four strategic pillars: opening up a world of opportunity; creating a place where great things happen; empowering an ambitious community; and securing a lasting legacy. A wide range of programme ideas and initiatives are set out to underpin Airport City Manchester as one of the most exciting business destinations in development today and one of the most significant in the UK since the 2012 Olympic Park. When completed, it will incorporate 5 million sq ft. of offices, hotels, advanced manufacturing, logistics facilities, hybrid and ancillary retail space.
