MediaCityUK's Lowry outlet to be renamed Quayside MediaCityUK as part of £26m redevelopment project
As mentioned in our previous post about MediaCityUK's Phase 2 development, the Lowry Outlet Mall that sits opposite to the Lowry Theatre and Art Gallery is soon to be renamed as Quayside MediaCityUK.
This comes as part of the new £26 million redevelopment project ran by Peel L&P and will include an entire overhaul of the centre. It will soon encompass ITV’s multi-million-pound entertainment attraction, celebrating TV blockbuster I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! that will open at The Watergardens development at MediaCityUK, adding to the rich leisure scene that already includes an award-winning and internationally recognised arts centre, restaurants and cinema.
Jason Pullen, Managing Director of Lifestyle Outlets said: “We are hugely proud of our connection with the Lowry theatre, which will always be part of our identity. The name Quayside MediaCityUK has been chosen to reflect our unique location as the retail and leisure heart of MediaCityUK, as well as celebrating our Salford Quays and dockside heritage.
While Outlet shopping is at the heart of what we do, Quayside MediaCityUK offers much more than a traditional outlet for our visitors, with an enhanced leisure offering, great events and entertainment, world-class museums and theatres as neighbours, plus we’re an exciting place to live and work. Quayside MediaCityUK is much more representative of the vibrant, waterfront location we are becoming and with ITV and The Watergardens opening this year, 2020 is due to be our most exciting year yet”.
This continuous injection of culture and revenue into Salford Quays further illustrates the value of the area and compliments the lifestyle of the residents and tourists of the area. Including the second development phase of MediaCityUK and the newly released Residence at Anchorage development, Salford Quays will see a further 400 apartments built in the area that will perfectly suit the young working professionals flocking to the area.
