The development will feature Europe’s largest indoor screen!
Receiving its first major investment in 20 years, Manchester’s Printworks is set to undergo a huge transformation thanks to a £9 million investment.
Currently home to a Vue cinema, Nando’s, Bierkeller and many more popular restaurant chains, new improvements will include a gold-looking interior, a 1300m2 screen on the ceiling, improved entrances as well as brand new lighting and signage.
The digital screen will be the biggest in Europe and will provide ambience, lighting and sound – with tailored content for visitors to enjoy. Additionally, a large interactive screen will be placed in the centre of the complex, providing interactive content for people to engage with – particularly around gamification.
DTZ submitted the planning application just last year, which has now been approved. The move aims to “maintain Printworks’ position as a leading and progressive entertainment destination for Manchester and beyond”.
Mancunians who visit the site often need not fear, as the Printworks will remain open while undergoing its refurbishment.
Speaking of the refurb, Ben Haller, at DTZ Investors, said:
“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 events and gaming programme.”
The Printworks is continuing to grow, with Tenpin Bowling joining the roster of current businesses under its roof this spring.
