A neo venture for Sundae

Yesterday we worked with family-owned property company Bruntwood to reveal plans for its £8m redevelopment of Bank House on Portland Street, which will become a 15-storey 52,000 sq ft collaborative workspace known as neo.

The initial launch announcement had incredible pickup from all key property and business titles including Property Week, Estates Gazette, Prolific North, Move Commercial, North West Business Insider, MEN Business, Startups.co.uk, Place North West, CoStar, Downtown in Business, Pro Manchester and The Business Desk, along with regional publications such as Manchester Confidential.

I was absolutely chuffed to see the story picked up by so many titles, and getting that first announcement into all of the right places meant that we even had people telling us the story was “everywhere” that morning!

We’ve worked with Bruntwood before, when we produced the digital and social campaigns for the Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting, an 18 month campaign in 2014/15 taking in live streamed online writing workshops, a social strategy for the launch of the Prize’s collaboration with acclaimed photographer Simon Annand and culminating in the live stream of the Prize’s Award ceremony in November 2015.

This was an amazing project to be part of and also meant it was really exciting to become more involved with the main remit of the company, especially for a name that I already admire so much.

neo is due for completion at the end of 2016, but with collaborative workspaces, a digital art space and a stunning roof terrace, no doubt it’ll be keeping us nice and busy in the meantime!

We love bringing people together for new experiences, challenges, and everything that goes along with being at a festival. I absolutely LOVE working with Shangri-La at Glastonbury, and naturally […]
