Plans for a 171 bed hotel, comprising 9 no. storeys of hotel accommodation and ancillary uses including ground floor café, plus basement and screened rooftop plant area and tower feature have been submitted.
The current building shown below would be demolished.
This is an anticipated submission, a previous application having been rejected for being too tall amongst other matters.
I’m instinctively supportive of a hotel being built in this area so close to Manchester United. Retail space in the Red Chippy Village is almost exclusively focused on supporting match days. It’s clear that the vitality of the area would benefit from more people being around outside match days.Councillor Mike Cordingley
Whether this is the right application is something that residents should have a say on and I’ll be very interested in the reaction.
