The 75 metre office building is the second tallest building in the Spinningfields area to the Manchester Civil Justice Centre, which is five metres taller.

According to Allied London chief executive Mike Ingall, "3 Hardman Street has been designed in particular for the financial and professional services sector for Manchester".[3]
