Brazennose House is the centrepiece of a regenerated Lincoln Square under an emerging landscape masterplan. The new building will provide six floors of Grade A office space with a stepped back roof terrace and retail and restaurant units at ground level to revitalise Brazennose Street, animating this important pedestrian link between Manchester Town Hall and Deansgate.

Constructed from riven and polished pre-cast concrete with bronze etched detailing the building is a modern interpretation of the design details used in some of the nearby historic buildings including the Town Hall and John Rylands Library. The main office entrance for the 1000,000 sqft building fronts Lincoln Square and the building kicks back to reveal The Hidden Gem with a new piazza created to provide an improved setting for this landmark, listed church.
