The Botanist has launched its 10,000 sq ft flagship bar in Warrington’s Time Square, making it the first occupier to open its doors at the £142m development.
Soon to follow in the coming weeks will be the 13-screen Cineworld Cinema.
This will be the nineteenth Botanist to open in the country from its owner, the New World Trading Company.
The Time Square development is being delivered by Warrington & Co on behalf of Warrington Council, with Muse working as the scheme’s development manager.
Chris Hill, chief executive of the New World Trading Company, said: “As the first site to open to the public at Warrington’s Time Square, we are pleased The Botanist will forge the path for this exciting foodie, leisure and retail scheme. We’re excited to become a part of the local community.”
Leon Guyett, development director at Muse, said: “The launch of The Botanist is a key milestone for everyone involved with Time Square. It also highlights our strategic focus to deliver a best-in-class destination that blends a truly unique mix of dining and leisure operators alongside Cineworld, which is opening later in December.
“We firmly believe that we’re delivering a transformational scheme that will become the beating heart of a thriving town centre experience for the community and we look forward to welcoming further high-calibre operators throughout 2020.”
Metis Real Estate Advisors acted on behalf of Warrington & Co and Muse.
