October opening for Salford’s CitySuites Two
The 147-suite aparthotel, part of Select Property Group’s Embankment West residential cluster, is close to completion.
Select claims the Salford development offers “the service and conveniences of a 5-star hotel”.
The 18-storey building, designed by CallisonRTKL, features coworking areas, as well as a gym and spa with an 18-metre pool, and a steam room.
The top two floors are occupied by five penthouse suites known as Super Suites. The largest of the penthouses is 2,755 sq ft and has three bedrooms.
Elsewhere at Embankment West, Sir Robert McAlpine is on site delivering two residential buildings to be managed by Affinity Living, part of Select.
The buildings are 16 and 18 storeys high and comprise a total of 356 apartments.
Overall, Embankment West offers just under 500 homes, 200 fewer than an earlier iteration of the project.
A scheme comprising 694 flats across 14, 25 and 34-storey towers was approved in December 2016.
The project was proposed in a joint venture with Ask Developments, but Ask sold its interest to Select following the approval of plans, prompting a rethink.
The first CitySuites building, which fronts Chapel Street, completed in February 2017 and is made up of 244 apartments.
Gavin Bailey, operations director at CitySuites, said: “CitySuites Two will be an evolvement of CitySuites as you know it in Manchester.
“The perfect combination of comfort and luxury remains at the core of our design and approach, but with additional facilities, community areas and services, we are going a step further in being able to really tailor and personalise experiences for each and every one of our guests.”
Deloitte Real Estate was the planning consultant for the project and Planit-IE is the landscape architect.
