CarFinance 247 To Become The Latest New Residents At Universal Square

MCR Property Group will welcome CarFinance247 and it’s 420 strong workforce to Universal Square later this year.

The company plans to relocate a 40,000 sq ft office in August, moving from their current HQ in Albion Works.

This news follows on from a number of recent lettings from AWH Legal, Kaplan Financial and Pearson Education who took residence over 33,250 sq ft.

When MCR acquired Universal Square in December 2015, the building was 50% vacant.

Since then an extensive refurbishment has commenced and over 100,000 sq ft of office space has been let to a number of companies.

Reg Rix, managing director of CarFinance 247, said: “The move to Universal Square will enable us to once again bring all operations under one roof.

“The business is currently spread across a number of sites in the Ancoats area of the city as a result of continued growth during the past couple of years.”

He added: “We will be occupying two and a half floors within the building and refurbishment is underway ahead of us completing the move later this year.”

MCR’s Charles Denby commented: “This is excellent news for Universal Square. The refurbishment and ongoing investment in the scheme has attracted a huge number of high profile tenants.

“Being based at the scheme means that we can quickly respond to tenants’ queries, which again has added to the building’s pull.”
