Swifty Scooters supply the Swifty Fleet to city-centre development, Windmill Green in Manchester UK. Forward-thinking property investment firm Fore Partnership has invested in a fleet of Swifty Scooters for their new development in a prime location in Manchester's city centre. Managing Partner Basil Demeroutis explains that putting a value on social drivers - assets that help Windmill Green tenants to form sustainable habits makes good business sense not just for him, but the tenants of the building too.
Sustainability and Well-Being
Basil Demeroutis said: “At Windmill Green we want to provide our community with different options to get about town, whether it’s getting to and from meetings or getting fit and active over lunch. The kick-scooters will complement our cycle hub and provide an alternative to riding a bike, walking or getting a tram. Scooting is a cool and quick way to get about the city. It’s fun, it’s sustainable, it’ll keep you fit and make you feel great.”
Demeroutis added: “We are pleased to be able to be backing such an innovative and creative local company Swifty Scooters. It’s a central part of our vision of real estate as a force for social good to be helping a fantastic, small local business fulfil their business as well as social purpose.”
Staff will have access to five custom-built and branded SwiftyZERO kick-scooters and will be displayed in the foyer for tenants to use free of charge. In addition to the Swifty Fleet, the building features a verticle garden, roof terrace and spacious bike storage, complete with showers, and is set to be one of the coolest workspaces in Manchester.

As a Manchester resident and regular scoot-commuter, Swifty Co-founder Camilla Iftakhar (above) adds,
"The Swifty Fleet will open up the city to tenants of Windmill Green as they will be able to travel further afield in their lunch breaks, there are so many great canal routes that have recently been renovated, and you can navigate between the city centre and media city without having to get close to road traffic - it's a hidden and underused route. Exploring the city or commuting by kick-scooter is a great option for the Windmill Green tenants to enjoy. For short distance urban mobility, the scooters are great quality and provide a smooth and fun ride around the pedestrian areas of the city centre."
