We’re building a curated community of creative members who call SEESAW home.

We know that to create at your best, you need a setting that gives you room to grow, spread out safely, feel at home and work proactively.

86 Princess Street is exactly that: a Grade 2 listed building reimagined to help nurture your creative process, your business and the people who work here. An environment that inspires with the technology and amenities to deliver the perfect work-life balance. We're sure you'll love it as much as we do.

SEESAW brings together designers, photographers, filmmakers, writers, coders, marketers and more.

The creative heart of Manchester

A stone's throw from the Knowledge Corridor and ringfenced by Central Library, universities, startups and global businesses, we're at the epicentre of Manchester's burgeoning creative scene. But it's not all work, work, work — there are plenty of bars, restaurants, shops and cafés also coming together to create the city's most exciting destination.

Oh, and we're just minutes from the transport hubs of Piccadilly and Oxford Road stations, which is handy.
