DTZ Investors has announced new lettings at Printworks Manchester.
Having welcomed Treetop Adventure Golf and Escape Reality in 2018, the introduction of a 12-lane Tenpin bowling venue completes an asset management project which will transform 50,000 sq ft of unoccupied space with new day time uses.
The food and beverage offer at the venue is also changing. On the ground floor independent restaurant, NY By Night recently opened offering wood stove pizza and craft beer. A new all-day restaurant, bar and club concept inspired by the garden of Eden opened this summer replacing Tiger Tiger.
The venue includes Vue, Nuffield Health and food and beverage operators including Hard Rock Café, Nando’s, Wagamama and more. It ended 2018 with a footfall of over 8.1 million, its highest footfall since 2011. The addition of Tenpin to the brand mix responds to changing leisure and customer trends by extending the Printworks offer and hopes to broaden the appeal of the venue to a wider customer base. Once viewed as a late-night destination, it is becoming an all-day venue for the family.
Duncan Garood, CEO of Tenpin, says “This is an exciting opportunity to develop our city centre proposition in the heart of Manchester’s entertainment hub. The Printworks site will open in 2020, offering visitors 12 lanes of bowling fun and a range of experiential entertainment to enjoy along with a bar and menu of easy to eat, delicious food.”
