Warm re­cep­tion for ho­tel plan

Manchester Evening News - - BUSINESS -

THE de­vel­op­ment of a new 12-storey Meininger ho­tel in Manch­ester has been given the thumbs up by coun­cil­lors.

Ex­pected to open in 2022, the ho­tel will be run by the Ger­man op­er­a­tor, which al­ready has branches across Europe, in­clud­ing in Aus­tria, Bel­gium and Den­mark, as well as Lon­don.

The scheme will be built be­tween Pol­lard Street and Ad­vent Way, fill­ing in a gap in de­vel­op­ment along that stretch of the in­ner-ring road in New Is­ling­ton.

Ann Scott, man­ag­ing direc­tor of de­vel­op­ment com­pany S Har­ri­son, said: “At­tract­ing a unique op­er­a­tor like Meininger, and build­ing a su­perb new ho­tel on such a prom­i­nent site, will de­liver the last piece of de­vel­op­ment on this re­main­ing par­cel of land be­tween the Fabrica of­fice build­ing to the north and res­i­den­tial de­vel­op­ments to the south.”

S Har­ri­son was ad­vised by plan­ning con­sul­tants Tur­ley. The firm worked with Manch­ester­based ar­chi­tect 3DReid.
