Accounting and consulting firm Crowe Clark Whitehill, part of the international network of Crowe Horwath, is set to move into a new office in Manchester. According to Manchester office Managing Partner Michael Jayson the move will prove a significant positive change for the professional services firm in the north west.
Early September, Crowe Clark Whitehill will complete its move from its current office in Manchester to ‘The Lexicon’ at 10 Mount Street. The building is well located – virtually at the epicentre of the prime St Peters Square, Spinningfields and King Street office locations. The Lexicon was originally called ‘Television House’ as it was once home to the Independent Television Commission, yet it has been extensively refurbished in recent years and now comprises of ten modern floors of offices, above five ground floor retail units.
Michael Jayson, Managing Partner of Crowe Clark Whitehill’s Manchester office, is delighted with the relocation. “It marks a really positive step forward in Crowe Clark Whitehill’s long term investment in Manchester and the region,” he says. “Our new offices are much more suited to our needs and include a larger and more up-to-date seminar room able to accommodate more than 50 delegates as well as tele-conference facilities in the meeting rooms."
During the real estate transaction, Crowe Clarke Whitehall was advised by Lorraine Lockie of solicitors Gorvins. OBI Property represented the national audit, tax and advisory firm on the leasehold acquisition and in addition OBI’s consultancy team has been appointed to project manage the fit-out works for the office. For the interior design of the new office, Crowe Clarke Whitehall has brought in the expertise of Charter Design Architects.
“We are delighted to welcome Crowe Clark Whitehill to The Lexicon,” says Andrew Joseph of PD Properties, the landlord of the building in Manchester.
