The purpose-built offices, planned to open in 2022, will be based in the Enterprise City development on the former site of Granada Studios.

WPP has agreed to lease the Allied London-owned building for 15 years.

The hub will also include Allied London’s media and technology-focused co-working space.

Karen Blackett, UK country manager for WPP, said: “The UK is our second largest market, and by building a brand-new home for our agencies and a creative hub for the city, we’re investing in both our future and in the future economy of Manchester.”
