3 Hardman Street was designed by architects Sheppard Robson, as part of the Allied London project regenerating Spinningfields into a major business centre. 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".[3]

In 2010, Allied London sold the building for £183.5 million.[6] It was bought by Glenn Arrow UK Property, which is owned by the Luxembourg-based company, Ærium.[7] Allied London continues to manage the building.[6]
