    A new hotel development in Manchester has been given the green light, with a scheduled completion cost of £13 million and should be finished at the end of 2017.

    SimpsonHaugh and Partners has secured planning permission for the new hotel on the Cable Street regeneration project in Manchester’s city centre.

    The new hotel will be designed for Axcel Hospitality who aims to establish a ‘distinctive sense of place’.

    The 8,000-square-metre scheme will be nine storeys high and created in the place of a surface car park. The four-star hotel will have 172 bedrooms, a café / bar, fitness centre and meeting rooms.

    It is thought the new hotel could be operated by AC Hotels, under the Marriott brand. Construction is expected to begin in September and be completed by the end of 2017.

    “With its sculpted massing and careful attention to materiality, the new hotel seeks to provide an exemplar high-quality design to stimulate regeneration throughout the rest of the New Cross district,” says Partner David Green of SimpsonHaugh and Partners.
