SECURING LIFE SCIENCES AT ALDERLEY PARK
Since achieving planning approval in 2016, Alderley Park has been transformed. The land receipts secured from the introduction of new high value uses, such as housing, have supported Bruntwood SciTech’s ongoing £247m investment into the revitalisation of Alderley Park.
Opening up the site and changing it from a single, private centre to a multi-occupier life sciences and tech hub, the investment made from cross-subsidising has delivered state-of-the-art, high specification laboratory and collaborative workspace, supported by a range of scientific services, and an accelerator delivering a comprehensive programme of business support for start-ups and scale-ups.
Alderley Park has established a track record of nurturing and delivering a world class science environment, that has enabled innovative businesses to thrive, resulting in a significant contribution to job growth, science and wealth creation.
Recent achievements include:
- Newly re-developed 150,000 sq ft ‘Glasshouse’ building, which opened in February 2020. This building offers high quality workspace to tech companies and forward-thinking innovative businesses. It is now home to over 80 companies
- Mereside campus is home to a range of life science businesses, including national institutions such as Medicines Discovery Catapult and Cancer Research UK Manchester Institute
