Hotel Indigo | City Buildings | Corporation Street | 46m | 14 fl

Finally a use for the grand old City Buildings, along with construction of an adjoined rotund friend. A 4-star international Hotel Indigo featuring a Marco Pierre White finery eatery.





A development part of the NOMA redevelopment initiative, brought to you by the Co-operative Group.





Take an exclusive peek inside the luxurious interior.

Is everyone at ease with a 'circular' tower/hotel on this site? A bit of a novelty in Manchester, so I'm assuming most people like the idea/plans?

Good with me. Manchester, in such a small space, has some of the most unique and diverse shaped buildings in all of the land. And this will only contribute to it.

I know some people on here have concerns about 28 days later peeps, but the photos inside the City Building are both amazing and distressing. The shot of Urbis is a particular good juxtaposition. But, the fact that the place is already being used as a "hotel" for the homeless is a bit distressing. Everybody knows the city has an underside, but rarely do you see it in such graphic detail like these photos show [shudder].

Less than ideal if you ask me.. something conforming to the plot would blend in better with City Buildings. Also seems a bit wasteful of space on such a small space. But preferable to another prefab Travelodge at least!

Add the new roof to the station, and new Chethams, and it will sit next to them just nicely imo.

It's going to make for a wacky walk north with all these strangely-shaped buildings. Should be interesting.

Hopefully they'll be aiming at their something akin to their Brooklyn development:



rather than this eyesore in Buffalo:

I am delighted to hear this.

Of course the anarcho-symmetrist in me would prefer some sympathic to the nearby buildings, but it's already a pick n mix in that district,so I doubt it can be done.

I can't remember if I included city buildings in my eyesores if Manchester thread, but this is one of the top boys.

Cool.
Is it only me that would be really pleased to see Long Millgate between Todd Street and Corporation Street re-instated as a proper street? Get rid of the surface car park by Victoria and open the area up to public realm, build on both sides of Millgate. Nice little development area I think.

Fantastic!

Can't wait for this to be built.

This, a refurbed Victoria Station, and a new Chets school. That just leaves Fish Dock.

I hope the rounded facade will be more akin to the Holloway Circus Tower in brum rather than that of our Peninsula building

Yep! Look really good from every angle, fits in well with Victoria Station and tidies up those derelict buildings. What's not to like? Certainly a huge plus in these times.
