Manchester, UK – March 24, 2021 — FORE Partnership announced today that Hana, a subsidiary of CBRE Group, has opened a new flexible workspace at Windmill Green. Developed with FORE Partnership, Hana at Windmill Green marks the brand’s first Manchester, U.K. location.
Located at 24 Mount Street in Manchester, Hana at Windmill Green occupies 26,000 sq. ft. of the redeveloped Grade-A office building, including half of the ground floor, plus the first and second floors. The space includes enterprise-grade private office suites ‘Hana Team,’ conference and events space ‘Hana Meet,’ and traditional co-working ‘Hana Share.’
Totaling over 82,000 sq. ft. across seven floors, Windmill Green is the city's first BREEAM Outstanding building with a WiredScore Platinum status. Windmill Green’s low-carbon design includes Manchester’s largest green living wall and a rooftop terrace with apiary.
The building’s occupiers have access to a fleet of branded Swifty Scooters, ample bike storage, and a central location close to transport hubs and local amenities.
Its sustainable credentials were recently enhanced further, as FORE announced that it has become a certified B Corporation – making Windmill Green Manchester’s only building developed and operated by a B Corporation.
Basil Demeroutis, Managing Partner at FORE, said: “Hana is the perfect fit for Windmill Green. We had been exploring the prospect of bringing a co-working element to the building for some time, but we wanted to be sure that the product would be completely in line with what Windmill Green stands for.
“With occupiers focused more than ever on health, wellbeing, and community, Hana shares our sense of purpose, and the finished space aligns perfectly with this shift in values. Now that it’s opening, we can’t wait for the Manchester business community to see how high-quality the spec of Hana at Windmill Green is, and to understand what sets it apart from other co-working facilities within the market.
“We look forward to expanding the Windmill Green community with Hana’s vibrant, diverse membership.”
Paul Nellist, EMEA Managing Director at Hana, said: “Hana’s values align perfectly with FORE Partnership’s commitment to sustainable buildings that benefit its tenants and surrounding community. In addition to providing flex space for mid-to-large size companies, Hana at Windmill Green will provide an amenity for the neighborhood, enhancing Manchester’s live-work-play offerings.”
As part of CBRE’s strategic investment in flex provider Industrious, all Hana units will be operated by Industrious when the transaction closes in the second quarter.
