Headrow, former Lewis
February 2007. View of the former Lewis's building which first opened in 1932. Allders took over the premises in 1996 but for the last few years it has been vacant. A new £36m scheme has been approved to renovate and re-develop the building to the designs of Manchester based architects Fairhurst Design Group. The construction is to be undertaken by Wates Construction and it will be a mixed use scheme including flagship retail stores, 150,000 sq ft of office space, luxury apartments and a rooftop terrace. The roof terrace is to include a heather and lichen garden and there will be bat and bird boxes to encourage wild life in the city centre. Off camera, left, is Dortmund Square. On the right hand side of the Lewis's building (to be renamed Broadgate) is the junction with New Briggate and then the former Odeon cinema building which also opened in 1932, as the paramount. This has now been converted to Primark. Quarry House is visible in the background, right at the bottom of Eastgate.
