The Flint Glass Works has been developed to create a working environment that is considered in design – in look, style & functionality. This is an environment that encourages businesses to collaborate. But it isn’t all work; we provide areas where you can take time out, relax and escape. We provide all the elements you would expect of a 21st Century workspace; superfast dedicated internet connections, plug and play phones, reception services, recycling and much more.


The Flint Glass Works is a historic building located in the heart of Ancoats Urban Village; the world’s first industrial area, with the first Mill’s being built as early as 1790. The refurbished mill development is precisely what Ancoats does best; juxtaposing the best of the old with the best of the new to provide modern flexible managed workspace; establishing a vibrant community of creative, digital and media businesses in Manchester.


Through retaining the traditional mill style of its industrial heritage with exposed brick walls and timber beam ceilings, the building oozes an individual character. The suites are designed to a high specification, providing open & contemporary office space with unparalleled levels of natural light that pour into the building through its many windows.


Service areas have been completed to a high standard with Porcelanosa washrooms and Pronorm kitchens provided. With cool break out areas, fully equipped meeting rooms, a roof terrace and a host of innovative features, businesses will flourish in an environment that is inspirational, impressive and aspirational.
