Manchester Arndale plans £11m food and beverage development
Plans have been announced for an £11 million redevelopment of the Halle Square dining offer at the Manchester Arndale shopping centre.
M&G Real Estate and Intu have announced that the 25,000 square foot space will be rebranded as “Halle Place” and will deliver a new contemporary casual dining destination.
Halle Place will encompass the ground floor of the existing Halle Square, which is already a key hub at the heart of the 1.4m square foot shopping centre, and new escalators to link it to the upper level. The new dining destination will provide shoppers with a diverse selection of the popular food and beverage brands.
Each restaurant will offer ‘al fresco’ style seating in the mall area, encircling a suspended public art centrepiece in the centre of an open double-height atrium area.
Construction of Halle Place is expected to complete in 2018, subject to planning, and will include 10 different restaurant units and a café on the ground floor in the middle of the atrium.
Kannika Mall, asset manager at M&G Real Estate, said on behalf of the joint owners: “Halle Place is a step-change for the food and beverage offer in Manchester city centre.
“The diversity and character of the brands we expect to bring to Halle Place will ensure shoppers benefit from a more exciting experience-led shopping destination, which in turn will drive stronger long-term income performance for the centre.”
