1 New York Street is a high rise office building in Manchester, England. Designed by Denton Corker Marshall, the building is situated on Mosley Street opposite 38 and 42 Mosley Street. The building opened in 2009 and its main tennant is Bank of New York Mellon.
The design consists of two glass and metal ‘boxes’ that appear to jut out of the main building, while the building facade consists of a glass and aluminium cladding to present a strong urban form and distinctive character. The city centre location of the 1 New York Street site presented a number of challenges as there are adjacent tram lines in the road and tunnels underneath the building. 1 New York Street sits on a site which was previously a BT building with tunnels running from George Street to Piccadilly Gardens. To minimise disturbance to both the tram lines and the surrounding area, the existing basement structure has been used in conjunction with new pile foundations. 1 New York Street is the first speculative building in central Manchester to be awarded a BREEAM ‘excellent’ rating.
Bank of New York Mellon
The building is occupied by the Bank of New York Mellon, a global financial services company which selected Manchester as the location for a new operation centre signalling their first foray into the European market. The Manchester office first opened in November 2005 and the company initially recruited 350 people to the Manchester office. Within three years the company had over 1,000 in Manchester and announced that they would be opening a second office in order to continue developing their presence, which subsequently was the 1 New York Street building.
