Hacienda Office Suites (formerly Florida Mansions) is part of the broader Florida Road commercial regeneration project by urban regeneration specialists Urban Lime Properties and will eventually form part of an entire block to be called Florida Fields.   Situated at 281 Florida Road, originally built in the 1930’s as a residential mansion block the building was re-purposed as commercial in the 1980’s.  Newly christened Haçienda thanks to the distinct Spanish style façade, the name is also a cheeky nod to the former infamous 1990’s nightclub of the same name in Manchester, England renowned as the birth place of acid house music.

Hacienda Office Suites have been fully refurbished and features strong contemporary art offering creative-type-businesses a ‘super creative’ environment with shared facilities, reception, meeting rooms, kitchen, bathroom and common areas.  Small boutique retail units on the Holden Avenue side complete the offering.
