Former headquarters of the Manchester Shipping Offices and
Packing Company. c.1887, by Speakman and Charlesworth. Red
brick with sandstone dressings and slate roof. Very long range
on end-of-block site, the south side slightly concave and the
east end canted, forming an acute angle at the north-east
corner. Eclectic style with Gothic features. Three storeys
with basement and attic, with facades of 13 bays to Lloyd
Street and 3 bays to Southmill Street hinged on a 5-window
drum rising from the 1st floor; with sandstone ashlar plinth,
recessed bays up to 1st floor, bands between 1st and 2nd
floors, saw-toothed band over 2nd floor, steeply-pitched
shaped attic gables, and a polygonal drum with slated
spirelet. The principal entrance, under the drum at the
north-east corner, is a curved open colonnade formed by short
coupled columns of polished granite mounted on sandstone
plinths, with heavily foliated caps supporting the base of the
drum which is encircled by a panelled frieze. The drum has
narrow 1-light sashed windows, those at 1st floor with a
panelled stone frieze and those at 2nd floor with arched heads
in a stone frieze, and an attic storey with moulded cornice.
The main floors of the Southmill Street facade have 3-light
sashed windows, those at ground floor with arched stone heads,
those at 1st floor segmental-headed, and those at 2nd floor
set behind arcades which have colonnettes with carved caps
carrying round-headed arches with arched extradoses; and the
attic gables have 2-light arched windows, and kneelers with
tall coupled chimneys rising from them. The Lloyd Street
facade has 3-light windows treated more simply, narrow attic
gables, and tall clustered chimneys. Interior not inspected.
