PROJECT OVERVIEW

Three New Bailey is a part of the English Cities Fund’s regeneration of Salford Central and will be the fourth new office building on the New Bailey site.

The seven storey, 157,000 sq ft building was pre-let to the Government Property Unit, who announced that HMRC would occupy the entire building as the sole tenant on a 25-year lease, for their new regional centre hub.
