Ancoats earmarked for SimpsonHaugh hotel
A planning application has been submitted to Manchester City Council for a 172-bedroom hotel on the site of a surface car park in Cable Street.
HOW Planning has submitted a full planning application for the nine-storey AC by Marriott hotel in Manchester’s New Cross area on behalf of Axcel Hospitality, a privately owned leisure developer.
The 80,000 sq ft scheme has been designed by SimpsonHaugh & Partners.
The brownfield site at Cable Street and Mason Street in Ancoats, is close to the Northern Quarter and the Co-operative Group’s headquarter buildings. Proposals also include a café bar, fitness centre, meeting rooms and associated servicing areas.
Conor Vallelly, associate at HOW Planning, said: “Our client’s proposals will assist in bringing forward the regeneration of the area which has been identified as a priority by Manchester City Council. A quality brand hotel and high standard of design should act as a catalyst for further investment in the emerging New Cross neighbourhood.”
