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 Spring 2019. Then later in the year, 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.


By tram: Holt Town - 2 min walk / New Islington - 5 min walk

By bus: 216 or 231 from Piccadilly Gardens every 10 mins

On foot: 25 min walk from Piccadilly Gardens, 20 min from Piccadilly Station
