First arrival on Kampus’ Little David Street

Wilmslow-based Great North Pie Co is the latest occupier to sign at HBD and Capital&Centric’s £250m Manchester neighbourhood.

The company is the first to take space on Little David Street, the cobbled street between Kampus’ two heritage buildings that connects the communal garden to Chorlton Street.

Great North Pie Co’s Kampus café is the company’s third outlet with sites in Altrincham and Ambleside.

Owner Neil Broomfield said: “Since we started out making pies at home for farmers markets, we’ve always wanted a base in the city centre. We’d been looking for a while and as soon as we saw Kampus we knew it was the right place for us.”

Little David Street is thought to be one of the only untouched cobbled streets in Manchester, according to the developers.

The aim for the thoroughfare is to create a “bustling, alfresco hang out, buzzing with bars, cafes, shops and restaurants”.

Adam Brady, director at HBD, said: “Great North Pie is something of an institution and it’s amazing to welcome them to the Kampus community.

“They’re the first to sign up at Little David Street, which will have cafes, bars and shops all spilling out onto the beautiful cobbles, giving it an almost European feel”

Other occupiers within the 40,000 sq ft of commercial space at Kampus include bakery Pollen, General Store, and Nell’s Pizza.

Kampus comprises 552 homes across five buildings.

Kampus is looking to be new the go to spot for food and drink!

The level of excitement over an alleyway screams much of the quality of development (and the urban landscape) in Manch city ctr!

Oh cobblers no need for such statements. Perhaps you wouldn’t feel the need to make such a fuss if you spent some time here and enjoyed the great success the city is having as well as the ambiance. I’m sure one day your towns time will come and we’ll celebrate that too.
