Chelmer tower plans on show

A public exhibition showing plans by London-based Chelmer Developments for a 40-storey apart-hotel in Manchester will take place on Monday 11 June.

The tower has been designed by Ian Simpson Architects and, if built, would sit on the site of a partly completed development next to the Mancunian Way that stalled at concrete frame in the recession.

 Chelmer existing siteThe land, less than an acre, is bounded by River Street, Garwood Street and the Mancunian Way.

Chelmer proposes to offer 600 serviced flats for rent on short and medium terms. Car parking will be limited to between 10 and 20 spaces.

A four-week public consultation is currently underway and ends on 17 June. A planning application will follow soon after the consultation.

The public exhibition will be on Monday 11 June 2012 between 2pm to 8pm, at Jury's Inn, Great Bridgewater Street.

Chelmer acquired the site from receivers in April 2011.

GVA is advising Chelmer Developments.
