This looks tremendous. Plans have been approved to bring a new food and beverage destination utilising shipping containers and focusing on independents. It’ll be facing us, so just over the footbridge and no cars.
The first traders to be based in the unique, waterfront setting next to the Lowry Theatre, will be ready to serve customers by Christmas with the line-up featuring start-up brands and operators across six units.
Along the waterside and overlooking the iconic view of Manchester United, The Millennium Bridge and the Imperial War Museum, there will be new terraces for outdoor dining balanced with attractive landscaping.
As well as the new outdoor space there will be an independent food hall and community space which will provide a platform for start-ups as well as nurture and support new, homegrown talent.
As part of the plans, the food court is being upgraded and given a fresh new overhaul and will be complete by early summer.
