The introduction of a new Carluccio’s restaurant in Peterborough will involve a transformation of what used to be the building’s conservatory.
According to peterboroughtoday.co.uk, the property used to house Harriet’s Tearoom, but builders have started converting it for the Italian eatery chain.
Part of this change will involve the creation of a “stunning new glass structure” where a conservatory used to be; so conservatory blinds may also be appropriate to block the light.
Sam Eastwood of Queensgate – the shopping centre owned by the same developers as the Carluccio’s building, Hammerson and Aviva – predicted “instant success” for the business, pointing out that there is an established Italian population in Peterborough city centre.
Mr Eastwood, centre director at the mall, said: “The opening of Carluccio’s will significantly enhance and complement the burgeoning catering experience around Cathedral Square which has proved so popular with city visitors.”
Carluccio’s has outlets all over the country and is continuing to expand, with a new restaurant opening in Teddington, south west London last Friday (June 8th), according to teddingtonpeople.co.uk. This adds to more than 15 stores that are already available across the capital.
The Peterborough store, on Cumbergate, is scheduled to open this coming Christmas; construction hoardings have only just been erected this week.
