Even though there have been a couple of businesses disappear over the last year due to COVID, one notable one being the excellent Iberica, Spinningfields is still a pretty buzzing corner of town, and one which looks set to get even better with the construction of some rather nifty looking greenhouses and a massive conservatory.
The global pandemic has exposed the need for outside, covered and heated space in the city, and so it seems that Allied London, the people behind the Spinningfields area, have taken note and decided to improve externals for many of its tenants.
Last week saw planning permission submitted for a large, one storey ‘greenhouse’ straight down the centre of ‘The Avenue’ – the street that leads from Deansgate down to the Crown Courts – taking in Comptoir Libanais, Fazenda and Thaikhun and considerably increasing their outdoor space.
Not only this, but they’re also planning on erecting a corner conservatory to the former Iberica unit – featuring a rather snazzy external corner bar and terrace, as well as extended sating down the side.
There’s no news yet on who is set to take over the old Iberica unit on this corner – but whoever it is will seemingly have much more space and a rather impressive outdoor area in which to create something fantastic.
Keep an ear and an eye out for developments on who’s set to take over the spot and benefit from this impressive conservatory and terrace.
