M&G Real Estate and intu have confirmed the first three brands to join the line-up at Halle Place, Manchester Arndale’s new £11m food and beverage development.
The 25,000-sq ft fully refurbished space in the heart of the centre will welcome Tapas Revolution, Barburrito and The Fizz! Bar by Frizzenti as the first three of ten new eateries. Tapas Revolution has taken 2,800 sq ft and Barburrito 2,140 sq ft on 15-year leases while the Fizz! Bar by Frizzenti will trade from 1,300 sq ft on a 10-year lease.
As well as providing a new eating and drinking hub, the development will see a new 28,000-sq ft new concept flagship store for JD Sports, which has signed a 15-year lease.
Kannika Mall, asset manager at M&G Real Estate said: “The immediate demand from restaurant brands for space in a designated dining zone has served as evidence of an untapped market within Manchester city centre for a casual dining offer.”
