The Merseyway Innovation Centre will soon be opening its doors in Stockport Town Centre, with a fresh new offer for businesses looking to have a central presence in the town. The Innovation Centre will support the growing sector of digital, creative and innovative businesses looking to locate in Stockport and offers flexible accommodation from coworking space, to shared office and individual units from 100 sqft up to 570 sqft. It also offers a 1,000 sqft business lounge and break out area with coffee stations and refreshment facilities along with two high quality meeting rooms. Located on the first floor of Merseyway, with a ground floor entrance on the main mall, Merseyway Innovation Centre occupies 15,000 sqft of former hard to let retail space providing a new home for small and growing businesses.

Cllr Colin Macalister, Cabinet Member for Economy and Regeneration at Stockport Council, said:

“Merseyway Innovation Centre is going to be a fantastic addition to our town centre. “We have a thriving business community in Stockport but this will help to attract and strengthen our support to small businesses enabling their businesses to prosper and grow. “The Council is making numerous improvements to the wider Merseyway Shopping Centre that will boost the area further. In addition to the new Transport Interchange just across the road the Innovation Centre is a key project that is just one part of our overall £1billion regeneration of our town centre.”

Jo Stevens, Managing Director of Oxford Innovation Space said:

“We are incredibly excited to be managing Merseyway Innovation Centre and are confident it will play an important part in realising Stockport Council’s vision of the area being a thriving hub of innovation.”
