Manse Opus shortlisted for yet another award!

Mar 7, 2019

Joint developers Manse Opus have been shortlisted for the PROPS Awards ‘Deal of the Year’ for their pre-let to Meggitt at their site Prospero Ansty.

In Spring 2018, Manse Opus in their joint venture with Rolls-Royce secured planning consent for a 490,000 sq ft new headquarters building for Meggitt PLC, which is the first pre-let on the 2.3 million sq ft advanced manufacturing, research and office development site. The deal will be one of the UK’s largest industrial lettings for many years, and is confirmation of the manufacturing industry’s strength at a time of great political uncertainty.

The nomination comes just a week after their win at the Co-Star awards where the team took home ‘Deal of the Year’ as voted for by CoStar’s readers. It was also recently announced that the Prospero, Ansty project has been shortlisted for the 2019 Property Week Awards Deal of the Year.
