Allianz to move flagship Manchester office into sustainable Landmark building

Posted: 17 May 2021


Designed by architects Squire & Partners, the 13-level Landmark building has been rated excellent for its sustainability, according to the Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM).

Allianz has signed a 10-year lease with real estate management firm Barings for 10,880 square feet on the first floor of Landmark.

The office space is being fitted out to reflect Allianz’s new flexible working strategy and will include features such as training zones, collaboration areas, as well as a broker zone for intermediaries to utilise when visiting.

Sarah Mallaby, director of broker markets at Allianz, said:

“We are looking forward to welcoming brokers to the prestigious Landmark Building. Investing in a flagship office like this demonstrates our commitment to the North. 

“Our strategy has always been one of strong broker relationships, which we’ve managed to maintain during the various lockdowns, and we’re happy to soon resume meetings in real life.”

Rated excellent according to BREEAM, the Landmark building is equipped with solar panels and electric car charging points, as well as sensors for lighting and taps. It includes storage for recyclable materials and a hub to park and maintain bicycles.
