DTZ Investors has submitted planning for a €10.4m (£9m) major refurbishment of the iconic Printworks Manchester. The plans mark the first major investment in the scheme since it launched 20 years ago and will maintain Printworks position as a leading and progressive entertainment destination for Manchester and beyond.
The works include enhancement of the external façade to complement the existing period architecture as well as new digital tenant signage and improved gateway entrances. There will also be an internal transformation with new technology, lighting and interaction to cater for our growing round-the-clock customer base.
Refurbishment is scheduled to commence in Spring 2020 and is being structured in such a way to ensure minimum disruption so that Printworks can remain open and trading throughout.
Ben Haller, DTZ Investors, said: “Our business has embraced the challenges of successful placemaking and we are deploying a variety of approaches throughout our portfolio. This refurbishment at Printworks will create an unrivalled interactive and immersive experience as a crucial element of our strategy, and operational changes will expand on existing community links alongside a new ambitious event and gaming programme. Printworks will offer our domestic and international customers with the quality and authenticity which they expect from social interaction whether with family or friends”.
