Millennium

CORN EXCHANGE owners - Frogmore Investments - drew inspiration from the shape of this historic building when launching plans for its future use.

Triangle at the Corn Exchange is the marketing name for this listed building and Director Joe Malvisi announced that his company already had prospective tenants queuing up to be part of this exciting development.

It took 8 million to restore the building's exterior and, with only the best earmarked for the interior, substantial investment will follow. Plans for the centre, designed by Manchester-based architects Ratcliff and Mountain Design of Glasgow, include a ground floor atrium with glass escalators leading up to a galleried development on five floors.

Joe Malvisi added, "Triangle is an unbeatable opportunity for potential retailers to take large, flexible space. It will give the people who live in Manchester and visitors to the city a magnificent choice."

All change at the Royal Exchange

The Royal Exchange shopping centre - closed since the IRA bomb of June 1996 - has re-opened with a flourish and a fanfare. More than 70 traders are offering their unique selection of trendy, innovative and traditional goods within the beautifully restored building. The combination of high street chain stores such as The Body Shop, Tie Rack and Oui Set - to name but a few - and cutting edge fashion designers such as Arc and Bozo for which Manchester and the Royal Exchange is so famous, is what makes this shopping experience so exciting.

Cafes and bistros, some old friends and some newcomers, ensure that there is a wealth of refreshment on hand to shoppers browsing among the antiques, curios, designer wear and quality goods.

The newly refurbished Royal Exchange Theatre revealed its stunning blue domes and pale yellow walls bordered with dove grey on the second anniversary of the bombing. On November 30 this world famous theatre company once again takes to the stage, only this time it will be with an additional 120-seat theatre equipped with the most up to date technology.
