Marriott to operate Peel’s £43m Cornbrook hotel 

Dan Whelan

Plans have been submitted for a 154-bedroom hotel and an 88-bedroom aparthotel on the edge of Pomona Island, the second phase of a project that saw Glenbrook’s £70m build-to-rent scheme Vox complete last year. 

The £43m scheme will be developed by a joint venture between Bricks Group and Peel L&P. It will be operated by Marriott under its Courtyard brand, it is understood.

Outline approval for the project was granted as part of a hybrid application in January 2018. 

Under those proposals, Peel and Glenbrook requested full consent for the 280-apartment Vox and outline permission for the hotel and aparthotel. 

Last year, Peel told Place North West it was in talks with a hotel operator for the hotel project, to be constructed on the former Mancunian Spring site off Dinton Street and Cornbrook Road. 

The vehicle suspension manufacturer relocated to Stockport last year and its former home has now been demolished to pave the way for the hotel project. 

Leach Rhodes Walker is the architect for the scheme. Avison Young is the planning consultant. 

The site is on the fringe of the Peel-owned Pomona Island.  

The developer intends to publish a long-awaited masterplan for the 26-acre site later this year. 

The masterplan is being drawn up by Jon Matthews Architects and planning consultancy Turley. 

Exterior Architecture is working to develop the public realm proposals for Pomona Island.
