The McGoff Group has revealed detailed designs for its proposed £3.5m redevelopment of Urmston market into a food hall, scheduled to open in spring 2019.
The designs by architect Street Design Partnership outline the plans for the site, centred on a new-build food market, which includes indoor and outdoor children’s play areas, private dining, a mezzanine level with additional seating, and space for pop-up stalls and events.
There will also be a co-working space with free WiFi.
The market, dubbed Market 41, will be operated by WMC Retail Partners, working alongside Northern Restaurant & Bar Show chief executive Thom Hetherington.
Outline planning consent has already been confirmed, and McGoff said it hoped Trafford Council would decide on the detailed planning application by this June.
Subject to planning, work is due to start in August this year with a proposed opening date of early 2019. The site was acquired by the McGoff Group in August 2017, and the company is currently building three five-bedroom houses alongside the market.
Chris McGoff, director at the McGoff Group, said: “Anticipation is already mounting in Urmston for the new food market hall, with lots of interest from locals in terms of timings and enquiries from potential operators, which is great to see so early on.
“We want M41 to reflect Urmston’s vibrancy and increasing desirability as a great place to live, work and play, and have worked closely with the local community to establish their views and understand their feedback regarding the concept, building design and product offering.”
