U+I to develop £850m scheme in Manchester



Regeneration specialist U+I has been confirmed by the Mayfield Partnership as developer of an £850m scheme in Manchester.

An outline planning application will go in during the first half of next year for the Mayfield Quarter urban regeneration project. The Mayfield Partnership is a public sector consortium comprising Manchester City Council, Transport for Greater Manchester and LCR.

The redevelopment will deliver a mixed-use community on a 24-acre gateway site adjacent to Piccadilly station that has been derelict for over a decade.

The proposed masterplan for the regeneration includes the construction of over 1,000 homes, a new hotel and 807,000 sq. ft. of offices as well as leisure and retail space, with the potential to create 7,500 jobs.

New image released of the bar/restaurant promenade being built at Salford's Lowry shopping centre - about two miles from central Manchester. The bars and restaurants face Daniel Libekind's famous Imperial War Museum North as well as Old Trafford stadium.




Lowry Outlet to get waterside restaurant terrace
PNW: https://www.placenorthwest.co.uk/new....Bel6708j.dpuf

Peel plans to spend £13m redeveloping the Lowry Outlet at Salford Quays, the developer announced as it launched its new Lifestyle Outlets brand.

Lifestyle Outlets reflects a move to offering a greater proportion of food and beverage within outlets as a destination, rather than just food on the go for shoppers, and a greater emphasis on entertainment, in order to lure more premium brands to the malls. Peel wants the Lowry Outlet to reflect the ‘where brilliance happens’ slogan of nearby Media City.

Reconfiguration of the 300,000 sq ft outlet centre has already started, Marks & Spencer’s relocated 15,000 sq ft store opened in August as part of a strategy to vacate retailers from waterfront units facing the quays. These units will make way for half a dozen restaurants in an aim to boost footfall along the ship canal waterfront. There will also be more entrances to the cinema created.

Jason Pullen, managing director of Lifestyle Outlets, said: “Historically the mall has turned its back on the water and we want to reverse that. We want to increase circulation within and around the centre.”

Around £3.5m is being spent by Peel on new shop fronts. There will be new ceilings, new escalators, refreshed lighting, and a wider public realm link around the corner from the main entrance facing the Lowry arts centre to the new restaurant terrace next to the bridge. Architect Chapman Taylor has been retained to draw up the public realm scheme. A planning application is due in the coming months.

Pullen said the developer was aiming to double sales and achieve a rate of £350/sq ft average net sales through the centre.

Palace Hotel | Little Ireland


Manchester's famous Palace Hotel has been redeveloped, and will now change its name to 'The Principle Hotel'.
  • Follows a £150m redevelopment of the hotel

  • All hotels operated under the US-based Starwood Capital brand will be renamed to The Principle.

  • The bar at The Principle in Manchester - called the Refuge, named after the Refuge Insurance company who originally occupied the building, has also had a redevelopment costing £25m

  • Original building built: 1895

  • Architect: Alfred Waterhouse

  • Clock tower height: 66m (217ft)

The Palace Hotel as it currently stands. The red illuminated "PALACE" sign on top there is quite distinct as a symbol for Manchester - it will be replaced following the rebrand.









And the Refuge Bar:

The renovation looks stunning.

Don't get the name change though. Palace was sort of iconic and Principle means nothing.

Palace Hotel also sounds nicer. It sounds like, well, palatial. Principle sounds like the guy that gave you detention at school. Would we rather stay in a palatial hotel, or go on detention? Who came up with this one...?

Yeah, I'm not a fan of the name change, I guess they just want to give it the corporate identity so it's recognised by visitors who have stayed in their other hotels. The Palace hotel had a pretty impressive interior as it is, it should look even better after this refurbishment.

Agree about the name change - Principle Hotel just doesn't roll off the tongue as well as Palace does - and as Justme says it sounds like somewhere you'd go for a detention

As long as the PALACE sign is replaced by PRINCIPLE on a neon red background then I'll be happy - it's the red neon sign which is iconic in Manchester (although it didn't always say PALACE - it used to say REFUGE, so maybe another change isn't so bad after all?)

Not sure about that one, it looks like the top has been plonked on top of the rest of the building.
