Launching in June, Hatch 2.0 will feature more street food, retail and entertainment
Manchester property giant Bruntwood have revealed phase two plans for Hatch - their pop-up, shipping container market beneath Mancunian Way on Oxford Road.
Launched in December 2017, the first phase of Hatch included a dozen repurposed containers housing local independent traders, from street food stalls to a natural wine shop and an micro-brewery and espresso bar by Northern Quarter coffee shop Takk.
Since then Bruntwood have shipped in more containers, offering vintage clothing, vinyl records, home-made crafts and Electrik Box - a mini version of Chorlton drinking institution, Electrik.
Now they're proposing to extended Hatch even further beneath the Mancunian Way. Totalling almost 12,000 square feet, Bruntwood plan to create a new 'food and drink village of kiosk-style street food' and attract some 'larger and more permanent restaurant and bar operations'.
Amongst the new traders will be Hanoi 75 - who've converted a 90s double-decker bus into a Vietnamese diner - and ceramicists Clay Studio.
Plans for phase two also include adding workspace and studios, a performance stage, a DJ roof terrace and a multi-purpose event space.
Hatch phase two is set to launch in June.
