Designs by 5plus Architects on behalf of Salboy and Factory Estates for a 129-bedroom aparthotel in Manchester’s Northern Quarter have been submitted to the council.
The building, staggered at between four and 14 storeys, is earmarked for a corner plot opposite Shudehill Interchange, occupied by a mix of single-storey retail units, dilapidated former warehouses, and a cleared piece of land.
Amsterdam brand Zoku has been lined up to operate the aparthotel on Back Turner Street.
All six of the buildings on the plot are due to be demolished to make way for the scheme.
In a reported submitted with the planning application, 5plus said: “The overall vision for the development for a hotel at Back Turner Street is to provide a high quality statement building that will offer a new, exciting and unique user experience. The building should provide a gateway marker on this prominent corner at Shudehill whilst being sympathetic to the scale and architectural character of the area, particularly where the building blends into the Northern Quarter on High Street.”
