The Hive Opens its Doors to the Arts Council and Manchester’s Creative Industries


Manchester property mogul Argent will soon be celebrating the opening of its brand new development, The Hive. The mixed-use building, situated in the Northern Quarter, is intended as a hub for the city’s creative industries, offering retail units, art studios and creative office space with impeccable green credentials.

Leading the charge to secure office space in the Stevenson Square development is Arts Council England. The Arts Council, which recently opened a regional office in Manchester, has agreed a 1,672 sq m (18,000 sq ft) pre-let with Argent.

Micheal Eakin, Regional Executive Director, Arts Council England North West said, “This marks an exciting moment for the Arts Council. The Hive will give us a great new base from which to continue to deliver to the region, and it will enable us to house nearly 60 new jobs in the City.”

"It feels right for us to be based in the heart of the creative Northern Quarter, to contribute to its continuing growth and to work with a developer like Argent to create a greener, more sustainable model of creative office space.”

David Partridge, joint chief executive at Argent said: “The news that Arts Council England will be committing to the new development is fantastic for the Northern Quarter and the city as a whole"

As more and more creative businesses and retailers relocate to Manchester from across the UK developments like The Hive, which offer unique, flexible and sustainable workspace, are becoming essential if the city wishes to continue to secure inward investment in its creative industry.
