3 Hardman Street
3 Hardman Street is a 16-storey high-rise built in the Spinningfields district, within Manchester city centre. The 75 metre high building, which is primarily used for offices, is the second tallest building in the Spinningfields area, being beaten only by the Manchester Civil Justice Centre, which is 5 metres taller. It currently stands as the sixth tallest building in Manchester.

3 Hardman Street is designed by architectural firm Sheppard Robson, as part of the larger Allied London project of regenerating the Spinningfields area into a major centre of business. According to Allied London chief executive Mike Ingall "3 Hardman Street has been designed in particular for the financial and professional services sector for Manchester".

The completion of 3 Hardman Street came in February 2009, and it became the largest speculatively developed office outside of London (a speculative development is a construction with no formal commitment made from the tenants of the building). The building was already 80% let prior to its completion. The building holds a BREEAM rating of excellent. The building is 16 storeys high, however only 15 are in use as one is a plant floor. The building also has two underground floors which hold 250 parking spaces.

In 2010 Allied London, 3 Hardman Square's developer, sold the building for £183.5 million. The building was purchased by Glenn Arrow UK Property, which itself is owned by Luxembourg-based company Ærium. Allied London continues to manage the building after its sale.
