Manchester City Council has appointed the design team for a new £19m facility, which will bring together the Cornerhouse and Library Theatre Company under one roof as part of the city’s First Street development.

Mecanoo has been appointed to lead the £19m project, while Buro Happold has been appointed engineer and Davis Langdon quantity surveyor.

The new cultural facility, expected to open in early 2014, will act as a catalyst for further development in the wider First Street area and help unlock up to 10,000 jobs.

Detailed design work will now begin, with on-site construction set to begin in mid 2012.
