Concord Suite
Concord Suite
The Concord Suite was originally the offices of Droylsden Council before the town became part of Tameside Metropolitan Borough. For many years it housed the Greater Manchester Pension Fund. They have now moved to purpose built premises SJ9098 : Guardsman Tony Downes House across the way. Future council plans for the building appear to be mainly based on its use as offices.

The clock in the foreground was originally installed as part of the "Droylsden in Bloom" project in 2000. It was removed in 2010 when the square, which is named after Droylsden's twin-town in France, was closed and renovated during Metrolink construction work. The clock was restored and re-erected in 2012 to commemorate the reopening of Villemomble Square.
