Plans submitted for hotel at Manchester Irish centre
Eagle Rock Investments has lodged plans to build a 135-bedroom hotel at the site of the Irish World Heritage Centre in Cheetham Hill, Manchester.
Altrincham-based Project 3 Architects was engaged in 2013 to develop plans for a 100-plus room hotel that would allow the centre to accommodate guests at peak times. The centre, which is a conference and events venue featuring music, dance and language classes, sits in a landscaped site between the River Irk and the Manchester Fort shopping centre.
Following presentations to the centre’s board and pre-application discussions with planners, the plans being submitted include a hotel featuring accommodation over four storeys on a 1.8-acre plot with 110 car parking spaces and improved frontage to Queens Road.
