A piece of sculpture or art makes a building stand out and gets people talking and thinking, if it makes them smile, that’s even better. We like to think we have brightened up someone’s day.
The new sculpture is set by the busy A56 commuter route into Manchester and Adam says he was inspired by the college quadrangle style of the buildings and the name of the development Crossford – the balancing man has his arms and legs outstretched in the shape of a cross.
It is an amazing location by a major dual carriageway and hundreds of people will be passing it every day. They will only be stopping briefly in their cars at the lights so I wanted them to only get to know the sculpture after a few visits – for it always to be changing in different light, in different circumstances,” said Adam, 26.
The Crossford Court development is a joint venture between GE Capital Corporation (Estates) Ltd and property investment company, Magnus Ltd.The office development has been given a much-needed facelift and its first tenant, Express Finance Brokers Ltd, has taken 232 sq. m. (2,500 sq.ft.).There are still offices available from 99 sq. m.
Chester Barnes, Asset Manager at GE Capital Real Estate said: “We have embraced Magnus’ policy of incorporating art within developments as we feel it adds to the aesthetic value and originality of each project.”Edward Lockyer, also of Magnus, says Crossford Court is in an excellent location and has already attracted a great deal of interest.
This is a prime site and Sale is a very desirable area for businesses. Thanks to the refurbishment, which we have undertaken in partnership with GE Capital, the development is a very attractive proposition and we have already received a high level of enquiries Melbourne conveyancers.
