Manchester city centre's office market has seen a robust recovery in office values, according to a CB Richard Ellis report.
Within CB Richard Ellis' H1 2010 Manchester Offices Market View, covering the first half of the year, it said ?316.7m was invested in the North West office market, which was a substantial increase on the ?46m of transactions in the
