More about the building

Manchester Containers are set to become one of Manchester’s biggest creative co-working communities, giving hundreds of aspiring entrepreneurs, creatives, makers and start-ups the space they need to grow.

Our pilot project will see us open around 30 ready-to-move-into workspaces in Nov/Dec 2018. Then in 2019, we’ll go big, adding another 300 affordable container workspaces, alongside investing more heavily in the site and shared facilities.


The site neighbours hip Ancoats and New Islington, and is a 20 minute walk from the city centre along the canal.
