Landmark Northern Quarter building Hatters Hostel to get a luxury makeover

The Hatters Hostel will feature 24 hour room service and a new diner and cocktail bar



A place where weary cash-strapped backpackers can rest their heads on a shoe-string budget - hostels are often synonymous with slumming it, but Hatters Hostel is set to change that with a major refurbishment of Hilton Chambers, which will transform the building into swanky hotel-standard accomodation.

I'm glad there are plans for something behind Two St Peter's, the gap between the One and Two currently makes it look incomplete and the buildings seem almost façade-like to the Square. If it gets approved, I think that extra density would really add to it.

Just wish it was a little bit upper class company. Nothing wrong with Motel One but we already have 2 in the city and this is a great location. Hyatt would have been a great option...

The base of Tower D (on the left) is largely complete - and a crane has been erected this week to start working on building up the core. The size of the base here is absolutely huge and really gives an idea of the sheer scale of this building.

Meanwhile, on the right of the site (in the bottom corner) you can see the core for Tower A - which is a few months behind Tower D but should start rising soon.

An absolutely vast site which will be vast in height before long too

Business Desk North West.

Quote:
AN £85m deal for the construction of phase one of the 24.5-acre Middlewood Locks development in Salford has been signed.

Real estate developer and investor Scarborough International Properties Ltd, and BCEG penned their deal.

The contract was signed by Kevin McCabe, chairman of Scarborough and Xing Yan, managing director of BCEG and was witnessed by Simon McCabe, deputy chairman and joint CEO of Scarborough.

Long standing partners from FairBriar Real Estate (the joint venture undertaking the scheme), Lawrence Chiang, COO of Metro Holdings Singapore and Michael Rex, director of investments of Hualing Group, Urumqi, China were also present.

The event marks a major milestone in the development of phase one, which will be completed in October 2018.

The first phases, which were granted detailed planning consent by Salford City Council in December last year, will comprise of 571 homes and associated commercial space, including convenience shops, restaurants, extensive new public realm including canal side footpaths and cycle ways to Manchester centre.

The first residents are expected to start moving in to the apartments in March 2018.

Kevin McCabe said: “We are delighted to have signed BCEG for the first phase of our Middlewood Locks development. This marks the culmination of many years of hard work and collaboration between all involved, both in the UK and China.”

Yan said: “We look forward to continuing our work with Scarborough on the development of this significant and strategic regeneration project.”

Chiang said: “The ceremony marks a significant milestone in our plans for the development of Middlewood Locks. This is a truly global endeavour.”

The Middlewood Locks development will deliver a new mixed-use neighbourhood which, in total, will provide 2,215 new homes and 900,000sq ft of commercial development space including offices, hotel, shops, restaurants, a convenience store and gym.

The scheme will have public green space and will be developed around three large basins of the Manchester, Bolton and Bury Canal which connects to the River Irwell and is a short distance from the central business district and retail amenities of Manchester city centre.

Phase ONE has a gross development value of more than £150m and is expected to create more than 300 jobs for the local region.

Middlewood Locks RMA submitted

Middlewood Locks Phase 1 Reserved Matters application submission coincided with President Xi Jinping’s visit to Manchester as part of a four-day visit to Britain. Following hot on the heels of the announcement that Xinjiang-based Hualing Industry and Trade group have pledged to invest in the Scarborough Group scheme, it was also reported during the Chinese State visit that Beijing Construction and Engineering Group have been selected as preferred contractor.

Construction of the first phase of Middlewood Locks, which includes 550 new homes, commercial space and extensive public realm designed by Planit-IE, will start in early 2016.

P-IE worked with WCEC Architects to develop public realm proposals for Plots F, I, J and O. The latter of these is a purely landscape plot, incorporating the restored Manchester Bury Bolton Canal locks and establishing the development’s green spine. The landscape proposals put the ‘wood back into Middlewood’ and designs link to the site’s industrial heritage through material selection and usage.

Middlewood Locks forms an important gateway link between Salford and Manchester city centres. The development creates a new neighbourhood that will eventually bring 2,000 new homes to an area that has been vacant of significant residential uses since the turn of the 20th century.

Someone needs to stick a camera on that spot and see how closely you got it. Great work!

Work is now underway to build 3 new platforms at Salford Central station. The station strategically serves Spinningfields, and the emerging New Bailey and Chapel St districts.

The total number of platforms upon completion will be 5- the station will form an interchange between Cross-City trains to Piccadilly, and trains to Eccles, Bolton and Liverpool.

It's a nifty little station on the edge of the city.
