A new generation of outlet centre

Chapman Taylor has been working with the Lifestyle Outlets team since Peel purchased the former Lowry Outlet. A series of asset enhancement design studies were identified to improve the facilities on offer and maximise the customer experience for those visiting the area. These studies involved a continual review and assessment of the commercial space within the centre in response to the rapidly changing retail climate, with the aim of meeting the team’s brief to create a new generation of outlets that have entertainment and leisure at their core.

F&B, Leisure and entertainment focus

The existing Vue multiplex cinema was extensively remodelled in 2019 to form seven state-of-the-art digital auditoriums, configured in a more efficient footprint. In conjunction with this refurbishment, works were completed to form a new, 2,500m2 leisure unit to house ITV’s “Leisure Box”, which will host a “Jungle Challenge” based on the popular series "I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here", and which is due to open in late 2020.

Waterside F&B with beautiful views

A new waterside F&B destination, called "The Watergardens", will incorporate eight new restaurants along the southern edge of the building, each with wonderful views across the water to Old Trafford. A striking building called “The Glasshouse”, offering two-storey, 270-degree waterside views, will offer a combination of dining and bar offers. An additional bespoke leisure restaurant, “The Treehouse”, will be located adjacent to the new Jungle Challenge.

Improved linkages

The £10m regeneration scheme, designed by Chapman Taylor, includes a large signature restaurant configured at the base of the Imperial Point residential tower – forming a key gateway entrance from Lowry Plaza to an extended, external terrace of restaurants which connects to the revitalised leisure entrance to Quayside MediaCityUK. A new bridge connection to the famous Millennium Bridge will improve pedestrian linkages to Imperial War Museum North and a new Metrolink station.

Reinvigorated public realm

A public realm landscaping scheme along the waterfront promenade will complete the transformation of this new lifestyle F&B destination, with biophilia extending through the F&B seating areas and internally into the revitalised mall circulation spaces.

Chapman Taylor is advising Lifestyle Outlets on its commercial strategy and designing a series of asset enhancement projects to help reinvigorate the former Lowry Outlet at MediaCityUK.
