MediaCity on Monday: Small business, sculpture and strikers

With the big name shows and high-profile developments it's easy to think of Salford's MediaCity simply as the new home of the BBC.


But the cluster of smaller business which the development has spawned is growing all the time and now stands at more than fifty within what's being called Media Village - The Greenhouse and The Pie Factor.


As the year gallops towards an end, we thought it was time to look at what's going on down there.


The Pie Factory, as its name suggests, was converted from a pie-making factory into sound stages and office accommodation in 2007, when work on phase one of MediaCityUK commenced. But The Greenhouse, only came into business use in April this year having previously been the main construction offices for owners Peel.


Managing director, MediaCityUK, Stephen Wild, said:



"We are very pleased with the number of businesses which have been attracted to The Greenhouse and The Pie Factory. Both buildings are proving to be ideal locations for creative companies wanting to take advantage of the MediaCityUK environment."


In The Pie Factory, the A-Z of occupiers ranges from a Churches Together chaplaincy called The Anchor, to TSL - the UK's leading broadcast systems integrator. It also houses leading kids and extras agency Scream Management as well as the people who deliver media buses for radio stations across the UK.


Over at The Greenhouse we start with the visual work of Andrassy Media and runs through to the games and apps development company Yippee. With legal firms and facilities companies along the way.


See the full list here and, if you're based at the Media Village and want to share news of your projects, don't forget to get in touch.
