The Astley

Progress Refined

Colony Co-Working – Down Arrow

The Location

Perfectly placed on the border of two of the most exciting neighbourhoods in Central Manchester, The Astley overlooks Great Ancoats Street and the edge of the eclectic Northern Quarter. Like its geographical location, The Astley is a unique and vibrant space for progress to thrive.

Bucking the recent trend of larger corporate developments, the intimate and tranquil space provides an ideal atmosphere to facilitate strong and longer-lasting connections.

The space is split across two levels, with floor to ceiling windows and an abundance of natural light. Designed in-house for our members, the vibrant and soulful interior is the perfect place to inspire creative thought and ideas to flourish.

We border the famous Northern Quarter, home of a vibrant mixture of bars, restaurants and street art. Only a five-minute walk from Manchester Piccadilly station and a ten-minute walk from Victoria Station we are centrally situated and easy to reach.
