Luxury Manchester development, Deansgate Square, has announced two further major commercial partners who are set to open their doors in the coming months.

Following the raft of exciting new operators that have started trading at Deansgate Square in the last year, the development will now welcome two new local partners. Namely, award-winning house plant supplier Flourish and popular health food and wellness provider The Green Lab.

Opening soon in two separate units within the flagship scheme, Flourish at 667 sq ft and The Green Lab at 2443 sq ft, both stores promise to bring something that promotes and provides residents with what they need for a greener and more sustainable lifestyle.

As a business, Flourish has its roots in the flower industry as a family business going back over 30 years. Today it’s one of Manchester most popular outlets for plant life and its new unit at Deansgate Square will become its fourth location in the area.

Speaking about the opening, owner Anthony Cox voiced his excitement and what he feels Flourish will bring to the development:

“After speaking with the team behind Deansgate Square it became very clear that this development isn’t just about building more accommodation in Manchester city centre, it’s about developing a whole new community and we can’t wait to be a part of it.

“The fact that Deansgate Square has chosen such well-loved Mancunian brands was a huge attraction. It’s fantastic that there will be a lot of people new to the city living in the towers and we’ll do our best to make sure they get to experience the best of what we do, right on their doorsteps.”

The Green Lab – founded by Manchester-based sisters Nikita and Kanika Banga – is a ‘lifestyle concept destination’ which opened its first store in May 2021 in the Northern Quarter.

The two claim their vision for The Green Lab is to create one-stop destinations housing a café, as well as a health and well-being studio.

Nikita and Kanika also voiced their collective elation and anticipation ahead of their new opening at Deansgate Square:

“We knew we wanted to expand and open more sites in Manchester, and then nationally. So when we saw the opportunity to open in Deansgate Square, it was something we didn’t even have to think twice about. The people that live in Deansgate Square – professionals of all ages, health-focused, families, people with busy lifestyles, people with flexi-work hours – are exactly who we want to be putting our products and services in front of.

“We are overjoyed to be opening our second store here, it will be bigger and better than the first – essentially The Green Lab with a twist! We have lots of new exciting ideas so residents and locals alike should keep their eyes peeled.”

James Sidlow, Senior Development Manager at Renaker said:

“Deansgate Square represents the first scheme to be delivered within the wider Great Jackson Street Masterplan. A key component in the success of this is the diverse and engaging offering at ground level, carefully aligned to the requirements of the residents, locals and visitors to the city alike, creating an entirely new destination.”

“Alongside the quality independent operators we have already secured, we believe Flourish and Greenlab will further enhance this carefully curated ground floor proposition.”


Comprising 1,508 spacious apartments across four carefully designed towers, Deansgate Square delivers another level of city centre living to Manchester boasting 72,000 sq ft of residential amenity space.

The Club, offers exceptional health and wellness facilities allowing residents to enjoy their own private pool, spa, gym and fitness studios and sports hall.

The Business Gallery and lounge spaces, recently opened, enables residents to work, relax, dine or even game in a contemporary and design-led space.
