A public consultation is to be held next Tuesday ahead of a planning application for a scheme by Peel and Glenbrook that would bring two residential towers and a hotel to a brownfield site next to the Cornbrook Metrolink station, bordering Manchester’s Castlefield area.
The plans include 280 apartments for the private rented sector, which will be in two blocks, located along Trentham Street and the corner to Chester Road; and a block containing the hotel and aparthotel, the latter of which would be on the corner of Cornbrook Road and Bridgewater Way as it becomes Dinton Way.
The scheme is on the other side of the tram tracks to the Bennett Bros scrapyard site, which Manchester City Council advanced plans to compulsorily purchase last year, the site forming the gateway to Peel’s Manchester Waters scheme.
HOW Planning is advising Peel and Glenbrook.
The public consultation will be held between 2pm and 7pm on Tuesday 28 November at the nearby Talbot Mill on Ellesmere Street, Manchester M15 4JY.
