Three Piccadilly Place is a new build office development in the heart of the Piccadilly Place masterplan. Sitting over three levels of basement car parking, the 13 storey building provides 200,000sqft of net office space immediately outside Piccadilly Station, Manchester. The development is the first building in the UK to be clad in TECU® Brass, a CuZn15-grade copper and zinc alloy that has been specially designed for use on façades. Weathering changes the original reddish golden colour of the surface in a very lively manner, with each façade developing its own unique characteristics. After the initial matting, the surface takes on a light golden brown that will sit comfortably within the historic context of Manchester. Further gradual aging will mirror traditional high quality materials in the area such the faience on the adjacent Central Fire Station building.
