New Cheetham Hill Road hotel proposed

A 147-bedroom hotel is being planned by Oaktree Investments for a site on Cheetham Hill Road near Strangeways, Manchester.

Sheffield planning consultancy Crowley Associates has lodged the application on behalf of Javaid Iqbal’s Oaktree.

The proposed L-shaped hotel would be eight storeys tall and faced in red brick, totalling 54,779 sq ft. As well as the 147 bedrooms, there will be a restaurant and a two-level basement car park with 86 spaces. The developer hopes to attain four-star status for the hotel.

Vehicular access is to be from Carnarvon Street, which borders the site to the north. The site is currently mostly occupied by a former petrol station-turned-car wash, and the Oaktree project includes the demolition of a single-storey building on site. An ICICI Bank branch is located to the south of the site.

The design and access statement prepared by SLA Design, also of Sheffield, states that “the development intends to respond to the city council’s policy and framework to create a hotel development that can kickstart the improvement of an area in need of regeneration”.

Cheetham Hill road has some great architecture. It is indeed grotty,but compared to Stockport road it is the Champs Elysees. Beautiful pictures of it in its prime in MEN last week in the snow.What a shame it is so neglected today.

An area dominated by immigrants, the largest number of nationalities in one small area than anywhere in the UK.

I don’t know why it is referred to as ‘The Green Quarter’. Where are the trees? Cheetham Hill Road could be a magnificent boulevard with a bit of TLC.
