The Bonded Warehouse

16 October 2015

On Thursday 15th October 2015, BuckleyGrayYeoman received planning permission for the refurbishment of the Bonded Warehouse in central Manchester on behalf of Allied London. The former 125,000 sq ft, 1860s industrial warehouse was previously occupied by Granada Television, the oldest operating purpose-built television studio in the UK. The proposed scheme will include six levels of office and retail space.


As part of Manchester’s St John Masterplan, the regeneration of the Bonded Warehouse will express the building’s rich industrial heritage. The original facades will be retained, and the majority of the key characteristics of the existing structure, including original timber doors, metal details and the Crittall style windows, will be kept and refurbished.


The Bonded Warehouse will provide an innovative and creative workspace for professionals and entrepreneurs in the heart of Manchester.


Work will commence on the project in 2016.
