Consortium plots 150-bed Manchester Hilton  

Dean Street Developments, Definition Capital and Assured CMS want to build a 20-storey hotel on the corner of Great Ancoats Street and Laystall Street. 

Designed by SimpsonHaugh Architects, the 150-bedroom Manchester venue would be operated under Hilton’s Motto brand. 

The Great Ancoats Street scheme would be the first Motto hotel in the UK. Others can be found in New York, Philadelphia, Washington DC and Rotterdam. 

A consultation on the proposals has launched and will run until 3 November. 

The consortium behind the project said the “rapid pace of transformation” in this area of Manchester, coupled with the emergence of other schemes such as Factory International and Co-Op Live, “has created a sustained demand for hotel accommodation, which is currently underserved in this part of the city centre”. 

This demand is already being partly served by the nearby 275-bedroom Leonardo Hotel, developed by Capital & Centric, which completed earlier this year. 

Also in the area, Very Inc’s proposals for a 3,000-capacity leisure venue, featuring a beer hall and night market, at the former Presbar Diecasting Foundry on Store Street were approved earlier this year.

Looks like Manchester, is grinding the political and economic banana skins, into the ground.

Will never get off the ground!

Another hideous eyesore? Another hotel really? Not needed!

By Roberta Upton

Co-op live isn’t even finished yet so how can it already have created demand?

By Roberta Upton

Don’t be fooled by the pictures this is a very tall slim building on a tiny piece of land having proportions similar to an earthworm standing upright on its head. It would be better proportioned if the land next door was included

By Kay

Like someone previously said, without the land next door this development will look out of place and will NOT add any visual improvement to the area

By Andrew

Shouldn’t that be ‘plans’ rather than ‘plots’?

By Anonymous

The side overlooking the land next door will be a horrible plain 20 floors high brick wall ( conveniently no pictures provided ) as it is will be a proper eyesore when looked at from Lomax Street

By Adam

if access across the land next door is denied by it’s owners This means the developer has to use both lanes of Laystall St. and at least one lane of Great Ancoats throughout the construction duration which can take 3 plus years creating traffic chaos at an already busy junction . Planners take notes
