Exciting new scheme set to transform Manchester roof terrace at Blackfriars House

Landmark Manchester building, Blackfriars House, has been granted planning permission for a spectacular new rooftop restaurant and events space.

11/11/2019 2 min read

Located just off Deansgate, in the Parsonage Gardens Conservation Zone, the roof terrace will become a city centre haven, complete with a garden and outdoor meeting spaces, encouraging customers to work ‘al fresco’ and soak up the atmosphere.

As well as opening a new restaurant with panoramic views over the city centre, the rooftop area will also host a packed programme of events, including yoga classes and movie screenings. Open to the public, the restaurant and event space is scheduled to launch in summer 2020.

The rooftop transformation, designed by architect, MgMa Studio, and fit-out specialist, DragonFly, is set to include a feature garden, as well as seating, lighting and shelter created specifically for the space.

As part of the building’s wider refurbishment plans, there will be an independent coffee shop, relaxed lounge, bookable events and auditorium space, while coworking areas will also be introduced to create a collaborative hub for creative and digital businesses.

The exciting transformation at Blackfriars is part of Bruntwood Works’ £50m Pioneer refurbishment project to invest in a number of its landmark buildings to create an enhanced environment with a true focus on wellbeing and collaboration.

Ciara Keeling, CEO of Bruntwood Works, said: ‘Offering outstanding amenities for our customers is just one of the key themes of our Pioneer programme and we’re extremely excited to have our plans for the rooftop at Blackfriars approved. We can now start to bring our vision to life and create an outstanding space where customers and guests can enjoy not just the restaurant, but a creative space to hold meetings, team catch-ups or simply socialise with the wider Bruntwood community.’
