The Printworks is another reincarnation
of an old beloved building on the Manchester skyline. For many years
a major headquarters for printing national newspapers, and latterly
as Maxwell House, part of that ill-fated newspaper empire, the building
had stood derelict on the corner of Withy Grove and Corporation Street
for several years after the death of Robert Maxwell, and had sustained
significant damage on the periphery of the IRA
bombing of Manchester
in 1996. The reopening of the complex
as the Printworks marks the final phase of the rebuilding of Manchester
in the wake of that bombing. Refurbished as Europe’s first urban leisure
and entertainments complex, the Printworks took £150million to
renovate and covers some 350,000 square feet of floor space.
It is an exciting mixture of cafés,
bars, restaurants of various ethnic cuisines, a health complex, and
a 20 screen cinema development. Here’s what’s inside:
