Flint Glass Works

Workspace in Ancoats

Colony Co-Working – Down Arrow

New Perspectives

The Location

Flint Glass Works is the latest Colony workspace situated in the heart of Ancoats. Located on Jersey Street, it has been purposefully designed to progress an area that is already full of cultural heritage and entrepreneurial spirit.

The setting is historic Ancoats - exposed brick walls and timber beam ceilings - while the fit-out offers high-specification suites, contemporary, open spaces, natural light and a roof terrace.

It started life as a busy glassworks 200 years ago and we've kept it at the heart of Ancoats Urban Village.

The workspace is a tranquil escape from the city's hustle and bustle, a place to bend and warp ideas, taking on new perspectives in comfort.

Designed in-house with our members in mind, the interior plays on the history of the building and features a mural by street artist, Voyder.

Allow yourself to go with the ebb and flow of the days, finding solace in the knowledge that you can forge your own progress here just as the Flint Glass workers did over a century ago.
