New Office Space at NOMA
Manchester is now one of the best performing regional cities in Europe, with a growing financial and professional services sector.
National and multinational organisations are increasingly looking to locate in the city to benefit from its strategic location, creativity and talent pool, as well as the excellent quality of life the city offers.
There is strong demand for office space in the city, particularly for modern and sustainable work spaces, but the building of top quality new offices is not keeping pace with this demand. NOMA is ideally placed to cater for this demand for new and flexible work spaces.
2 & 3 Angel Square
The proposals for two brand new office-led developments at NOMA were given planning consent in 2015.
Known as 2 & 3 Angel Square, the scheme will deliver two new landmark office developments on the currently vacant plots at the heart of the NOMA site – located in between the award-winning One Angel Square and the Angel Gardens residential development.
The proposals for the office buildings at 2 & 3 Angel Square are being developed in parallel. Although they will be physically separate buildings with their own distinctive identities, the NOMA team developed the designs alongside each other. This was to ensure that the buildings complement each other and interact positively with the Angel Square public realm – the focal point for this part of the NOMA site.
Within these designs, as with other developments at NOMA, a key design priority has been to ensure vibrancy at ground floor level and to improve the pedestrian experience.

- The access to the car park will be from Miller Street.
The Hanover is part of NOMA’s listed estate; it is a heritage building which has been designed to blend with the contemporary alterations to the building. Hanover is home to both office units and retail occupiers.
Hanover was the first building from NOMA’s listed estate to be brought to market.
The Federation is home to the Castlefield Gallery which began occupying the space in 2013 in support of their New Art Spaces Initiative. The charity provides dynamic project spaces to emerging creatives to incubate their practices, produce work and showcase new art to local communities. Long term plans for the refurbishment of Federation include a combination of office space with restaurant and retail/leisure options for the ground and lower ground floors including an indoor market.
