Clegg, Fryer and Penman

St James' Buildings, Oxford Street - 1912 - 1913

A huge Baroque portland stone office building by Clegg, Fryer and Penman for the Calico Printer's Association.  Clare Hartwell in Pevsner's Architectural Guide to Manchester says that it is "so big that it can only be seen obliquely."  Bruntwood who are marketing the building say that it is, " of Manchester’s most stunning period properties, providing a stylish combination of contemporary and traditional offices. The nine storey office building features an impressive marble reception area with a sweeping staircase."
