It’s only been one year, officially, since the team behind Ramona breathed new life into the decaying MOT station left on Swan Street. But it seems they have itchy feet already.
Announcing their newest project just yesterday, the creative team plan to resurrect one of Manchester’s biggest factories – Diecast Presbar Factory near Piccadilly – completely transforming it into a beer and food hall with a brewery, a bakery and even a night market.
Creating a whole new space for locals to enjoy, independent retailers will be invited to trade at the market, with space for offices and even an expansive green garden that lines the canal in store for locals to utilise.
The Store Street corner of the premises will be reserved for the all-new artisan bakery which will open throughout the daytime, where guests will be able to chill in a taproom, enjoy deli grub with a coffee, and even chow down on simple BBQ food cooked on a wood grill.
More details are set to be revealed soon, however, it’s expected to be one of the biggest openings in town when it does eventually open.
