Representing a €11.8 million investment and set to open in Q4 of this year, the new Liverpool ONE venue will span the two upper floors of the former Debenhams. An evolution of Gravity Southside, Wandsworth, the retail destination will be the first venue to feature an outside rooftop space that will be integrated into the overall experience.
The venue will also house a unique e-karting experience, bowling, urban golf, and modern F&B offering with a bar concept and live entertainment. Gravity is building on the increased interest in innovative leisure experiences, with Liverpool ONE being the company’s flagship in its portfolio of 18 venues across the UK, with further openings on the horizon.
Michael Harrison, co-Founder and Chief Growth Officer at Gravity, commented: “This is our biggest investment yet and we are delighted to be collaborating with Grosvenor, at a destination that has continued to perform positively despite the recent market challenges. As a business, we are getting stronger all the time and we have no doubt that we will control one million square feet of the high street within the next two years.”
Alison Clegg, Managing Director, Asset Management, Grosvenor, added: “We are delighted to welcome Gravity to Liverpool ONE, and to be the partner and destination of choice for such a landmark moment in the company’s expansion. It also makes great sense to be bringing such an exciting concept to Liverpool; as the UK’s most sociable city, it is the perfect home for Gravity.”
