Plans have been submitted for a 154-bedroom hotel and an 88-bedroom aparthotel on the edge of Pomona Island, the second phase of a project that saw Glenbrook’s £70m build-to-rent scheme Vox complete last year.
Apparently, the £43 million development will be built by Bricks Group and Peel L&P and will be managed by Marriott under the Courtyard brand.
The project was approved as part of a hybrid application in January 2018.
In those proposals, Peel and Glenbrook sought full approval for the Vox’s 280 apartments as well as outline approval for the hotel and aparthotel.
Peel told Place North West it was in talks with a hotel operator for the project which will be constructed on the former Mancunian Spring site off Dinton Street and Cornbrook Road.
As part of the hotel development project, the former home of the vehicle suspension manufacturer has been demolished to make way for their new warehouse.
The architect of the scheme is Leach Rhodes Walker. The planning consultant is Avison Young.
It is located on the edge of Peel-owned Pomona Island.
Developers plan to publish a long-awaited master plan for the 26-acre site later this year.
Jon Matthews Architects and planning consultancy Turley are working on the masterplan.
Currently, Exterior Architecture is developing the public realm proposals for Pomona Island.
