The original MSP location, Manchester Science Park, is situated at the heart of Corridor Manchester, the city’s innovation district. Already home to more than 120 innovative businesses, it is set to grow in popularity with the Bright Building, MSP’s first new development in 15 years.
Because of its proximity to the University of Manchester, Manchester Metropolitan University and Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (CMFT), Manchester Science Park is a particularly dense cluster of knowledge-based businesses, attracted by the strong links it offers to the public, private sectors and academia and a vibrant community including on-site pub and cafe.
Manchester Science Park is also part of the Corridor Manchester Enterprise Zone, giving qualifying businesses the ability to claim up to 100% business rate relief for a maximum five years, as well as increased capital allowances.
The opening of the Bright Building will enhance facilities for all Manchester Science Park customers as it will act as the hub for the whole campus. As well as office space it will have a gym, café, auditorium and networking space, allowing people to get together, share ideas and socialise all under one roof. It will also be a test bed for pioneering the use of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies to create a smarter living and working city
