Citylabs is a joint venture between MSP and Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (CMFT) which aims to create biomedical centres of excellence close to CMFT’s extensive clinical facilities.
The first of these centres, Citylabs 1.0, opened in 2014 and has provided a hugely successful model for creating stronger links between the NHS, academic health science communities and private sector businesses. By locating at Citylabs, companies get direct access to specialist clinical resources and expertise from researchers, clinicians and procurement teams to help support their business growth.
Following the success of Citylabs 1.0, we have unveiled plans for the development of Citylabs 2.0 and Citylabs 3.0, the first due for completion in 2019 and the second timetabled for 2021. Developed by Bruntwood on behalf of the partnership, these two state-of-the-art facilities will provide prime lab and office space at the heart of Europe’s largest clinical academic campus.
To add to the appeal, both are located within the designated Corridor Manchester Enterprise Zone, providing businesses who base themselves there with access to 100% business rate relief for up to five years, as well as extended capital allowances.
