A new co-working and office building has officially opened in Preston city centre.

OneCoWork, in Winckley Square, has seen a multi-million pound fit out of the former Capital offices into a new, modern, space.

The multi-million pound investment comes from Branco Capital, who recently completed a set of apartments just up the road in Chapel Street.

Paul Hansen, operations manager at OneCoWork Preston, told Blog Preston: “This is a really high-spec space but also flexible, and we’re seeing good demand for the space already in the city.

“We’ve got a gym, coffee area, kitchen, events space – there’s a way to make this space work for all different types of individuals and businesses.

“And of course you’re right on Winckley Square so it’s a fantastic city centre location. A lot of people we’ve been speaking to they want that Winckley Square address.”

Once finished the redevelopment of the building – which is grade-II listed at its front – there will be a total of 500 desk spaces set across its four floors.

The building is the site of the former Preston Catholic College which operated on the site from 1865 to 1978.
