Boasting 17 million sq ft of flexible employment space, Atom Valley’s scale is unrivalled. But that space, being located within an international city region, is what makes it truly unique.
Global investment destination
Collectively covering three sites, as well as skills, transport and housing, Atom Valley’s vast size and strategic position sets it apart from other developments in the UK, making it an investment location of global significance.
Expansive industrial cluster
From megafactories and large-scale single use to specialist start-ups, scale-ups and SMEs, this expansive industrial cluster offers limitless opportunity with a focus on manufacturing, smart intelligent machinery and advanced sustainable materials.
Sites & Zones
Strategically positioned along the M62 corridor, Atom Valley’s three sites – Northern Gateway, Kingsway and Stakehill – are supported by local authorities and sit close to established business networks, as well as research centres and academic institutions.
Stretching across 13 million sq ft, the Northern Gateway is Atom Valley’s largest single site, occupying a location adjacent to the M60, M62 and M66.
£650m has already been invested with an expected creation of 20,000 new jobs, alongside 3,000 new homes. Primed for development, the site offers a vast amount of flexible space that’s ready for design and build. Complemented by active travel routes that link communities and employment areas, a green corridor will run through the site, allowing nature and sustainability to sit at its very heart.
A section of land at the north of the development will be home to AMPI – an initiative that’s set to drive innovation for the UK’s advanced machinery manufacturers and meet the challenges of developing new technology and emerging markets.
Totalling 3.4 million sq ft, Kingsway is situated at Junction 21 of the M62. Its position makes it one of the best located business parks in the UK, with direct motorway links unlocking Manchester city centre, Liverpool, Yorkshire and further afield to Europe.
The site offers both ready-to-let industrial units, as well as opportunities for design and build, with space ranging from 40,000 to 200,000 sq ft. Kingsway is already home to existing specialisms including manufacturing, warehousing, distribution and logistics.
A dedicated Metrolink station gives employees and customers quick and direct access to the city region, while a network of cycle, walking and bus routes also passes nearby.
Lying between the Northern Gateway and Kingsway, Stakehill sits just 1 mile south of the M62 with direct access via the A627 (M) dual-carriageway. The site offers a range of modern and refurbished units for immediate occupation.
More suited to warehousing and industrial uses, Stakehill is one of the premier distribution locations in the North West of England. Its facilities feature integrated high quality offices, roller shutter door access and large yard space.
Properties range from 5,429 to 108,000 sq ft, with existing businesses including DHL, Yodel, O2 and Boots.
As part of a fast-growing city region, and the largest city economy outside of London, this corner of Greater Manchester is perfectly placed for a diverse range of businesses to grow, expand and prosper.
