Jadebricks tables plans for Northern Quarter hotel 

Located between Oldham Street and Spear Street in Manchester, plans for the 117-bedroom Larard’s Still feature the retention and conversion of several existing buildings. 

Jadebricks, which is headed up by former Edwards & Co partner Mike Bathurst, has submitted plans for the SimpsonHaugh-designed project with Manchester City Council. 

“Since we acquired the site for Larard’s Still in 2020, we have been passionate about ensuring the design is respectful to the Northern Quarter and wider Manchester city centre heritage.,” said Mike Bathurst, Jadebricks’ managing director. 

“Working with a team of Manchester-based consultants, we’re delighted to have submitted our proposals to Manchester City Council and we’re keen to push forward with delivering another outstanding development for the city.” 

The developer wants to retain and re-use 68 Oldham Street, while also keeping the façade of 70 Oldham Street. 

The main element of the scheme will see the creation of a new-build 10-storey block, while the warehouse at 61-65 Spear Street would be converted and extended upwards by three storeys. 

Cycas Hospitality has signed up to manage the aparthotel under Accor’s Adagio brand. 

As well as the hotel rooms, the scheme would also feature a guest lounge, gym and laundry facilities, and two independent commercial units on the ground floor. 

Turley is advising Jadebricks on planning. 

“Larard’s Still is an exciting development for Manchester’s Northern Quarter,” said Turley planning director Stephen Bell. 

“By restoring and bringing these buildings back into use, the development can make a valuable contribution to the area, adding to the mix and vibrancy of Oldham Street in particular.”

The extension on top looks out of proportion to the existing building, but it’s better than having a derelict building

‘Retention and conversion’ how very welcome those words are especially here.
