New lease of life for for­mer brew­ery site

Salford Advertiser - - NEWS -

A FOR­MER brew­ery site has opened as a bou­tique ho­tel.

More than £6m has been spent on turn­ing the for­mer Brown Brothers Brew­ery on Trin­ity Way into The Ain­scow.

A launch party was held at the 75-bed ho­tel to cel­e­brate the open­ing, with a toast to the project’s founder, prop­erty de­vel­oper Carol Ain­scow, who died last year be­fore work was com­pleted.

Her team con­tin­ued the de­vel­op­ment in her hon­our, and ar­chi­tect Martin Bres­lin spoke at the launch of how proud she would be that the ho­tel is now open. He said: “It was al­ways Carol’s vi­sion to open this ho­tel, so we feel very pleased to now be able to de­liver some­thing that she would be proud of.

“Carol was great at spot­ting re­gen­er­a­tion ar­eas, and she did it here too in Sal­ford.”

The ho­tel stands in the heart of the Chapel Street re­gen­er­a­tion area, and the land­mark build­ing has un­der­gone a full restora­tion with the ad­di­tion of a new floor.

Carol, whose prop­erty company Ar­ti­san trans­formed flats, bars and restau­rants on Canal Street, died last Septem­ber aged 55, after bat­tling a brain tu­mour.
