New plans for the Lowry Outlet to become a vibrant waterside dining destination have been revealed by Lifestyle Outlets.
“The Watergardens”, an elegant dining concept, has been designed by architects Chapman Taylor to maximise the waterfront location with a variety of new restaurants benefiting from the best waterside views in Greater Manchester.
In addition, a new waterfront promenade, improved public realm and integrated planting along the canal will connect the Millennium Bridge to the Outlet Mall, creating a unique landscaped waterside location. The Watergardens will incorporate biophilic design principles, to strengthen the connection between nature and natural elements and the man-made environment.
Since acquiring the Lowry Outlet, Lifestyle Outlets have already invested millions of pounds with a further £26 million investment planned that will secure over 1900 jobs.
Jason Pullen, Managing Director of Lifestyle Outlets said, “The redevelopment will transform the southern waterside of the Lowry Outlet, allowing people to relax and dine with some of the finest waterfront views.
“When the work is complete, the Lowry Outlet will be a unique shopping and leisure destination that will draw people from across the region to Salford Quays and MediaCityUK”
Prior to submitting a planning application to Salford City Council, Lifestyle Outlets will be showcasing its plans at a public consultation event. The exhibition will be taking place between 1pm and 7pm on Saturday 4 August 2018 at the Exhibition Suite, opposite the Clarks Outlet store on the ground floor of the Lowry Outlet.
