New waterfront restaurants form part of £26 million investment by Lifestyle Outlets

Lifestyle Outlets, owners of The Lowry Outlet in Salford Quays, have revealed plans to construct a new waterfront dining complex as part of a £26m investment into the retail and leisure mall.

They say The Watergardens, designed by architects Chapman Taylor, will 'maximise' the waterfront location with an 'elegant dining concept' offering a variety of new restaurants boasting views across the Quays.

Plans also include a new waterfront promenade with improved public realm and greenery along the canal connecting the Millennium Bridge to the Outlet Mall. 

Bosses say the development will incorporate 'biophilic design principles' in order to 'strengthen the connection between nature and natural elements and the man-made environment'. (We think that means a green wall or two.)

Jason Pullen, Managing Director of Lifestyle Outlets said: "The redevelopment will transform the southern waterside of the Lowry Outlet, allowing people to relax and dine with some of the finest waterfront views.

"When the work is complete, the Lowry Outlet will be a unique shopping and leisure destination that will draw people from across the region to Salford Quays and MediaCityUK”

Before plans are submitted to the council, Lifestyle Outlets will hold a public consultation event in the Exhibition Suite of the Lowry Outlet (opposite the Clarks Outlet store) on Saturday 4 August, 1pm to 7pm.
