Lifestyle Outlets secured ITV as anchor tenant

ITV is the latest anchor tenant to sign a multi-year deal at Lowry Outlet, part of Peel L&P, and will be opening a brand immersive leisure attraction next year.

Rufus Radcliffe, Chief Marketing Officer, for ITV said: “We are delighted to confirm the Lowry’s new Watergardens development in Manchester will become home to an exciting new leisure attraction, which is set to open next summer, with an ITV big brand experience at it’s heart.”

The strategic partnership with ITV is part of a wider plan and £26m regeneration of the Lowry into a leading leisure and retail destination that will also see the opening of a new waterside dining concept in 2020. Following planning being granted in March this year, work has already started on “The Watergardens” that will see the transformation of the southern waterfront into a vibrant leisure destination offering a new 30,000 sq ft restaurant terrace benefiting from a new Metrolink line opening next year.

Details on the attraction itself are being kept under wraps for now, but ITV are proud to be adding another live event and experience to their portfolio, which includes Coronation Street The Tour, Emmerdale Village Tour, Emmerdale Studio Experience, This Morning Live and the more recently announced, ITV Daytime Studios Tour at Television Centre in London.

Jason Pullen, Managing Director of Lifestyle Outlets said: “Lifestyle Outlets are at the forefront of creating the next generation of outlets and this exciting partnership with ITV will reinforce our position of delivering leading retail and leisure destinations with immersive leisure attractions”.
