MBS Redevelopment - Hotel & Executive Education Centre | Manchester University | 60m | 19 fl | U/C

For those unsure about the height, it will be roughly the same height as City lofts at Salford Quays, or twice the height of the current Manchester University's Business School.

Bruntwood picked to deliver £60m MBS upgrade

31st October 2011

By Mike Fahy - Assistant Editor



DEVELOPER Bruntwood has been confirmed as development partner for a £60m project to upgrade Manchester University's Business School.

The plans, which were first revealed by TheBusinessDesk.com in March, involve the construction of a new, external hotel and conference centre, replacing the one currently within the business school building.

A new executive education centre will also be built, while new teaching and administrative space will also be delivered.

The design by Manchester-based architect BDP, involves the removal of the footbridge currently above Oxford Road at its junction with Both Street and the replacement of the University Precinct shopping centre.

The project will be delivered in several phases, with construction scheduled to begin on the first phase next year - the new hotel and conference centre.

Professor Michael Luger, Dean of Manchester Business School, said: “We are delighted to be working with Bruntwood on what will be a flagship investment for the city of Manchester.

"It’s our aim that the new Manchester Business School will become a landmark gateway to Corridor Manchester, at the heart of the city’s knowledge-led economy.

"Our ethos is about applying original thinking to make positive change and the new building, funded in part through pledges in excess of £2m from alumni of the School and local philanthropists, echoes this philosophy – both in its design and function.

“As we move towards our goal of becoming a truly world-class business school the hotel and conference centre will provide an excellent base from which to explore Manchester and it will play a key role in attracting inward development to the city.”

Colin Sinclair, director of special projects at Bruntwood, said: "Bruntwood is delighted to have been chosen to redevelop Manchester Business School and is looking forward to working with the University of Manchester and MBS to deliver a world class facility at the very heart of The Corridor".

Welcome

Proposed view of the redevelopment on Booth Street West.



The University of Manchester, in partnership with Bruntwood, is planning a multi-million pound redevelopment of Manchester Business School’s campus on Booth Street West and Oxford Road.
This exciting scheme will provide Manchester Business School (MBS) with the facilities it needs to retain its position as a world-leading research and teaching institution. The plans include the refurbishment of MBS’s existing buildings as well as the construction of state-of-the-art new facilities that will provide a landmark development within the Oxford Road regeneration area.

This website provides further information about the partnership between the University of Manchester and Bruntwood and the latest on their plans for the MBS scheme. http://www.mbs-redevelopment.co.uk/

The horrid shopping precinct is going. Good stuff, poor Blackwells and the other shops there have suffered in darkness for long enough!

I thought the precinct was to be remodelled rather than demolished.

Don't understand why a University needs to build a hotel but then I couldn't be bothered to read the article in full, just happy at a 19 storey building here!

I didn't realise the precinct was going. It's not been successful recently, but there still needs to be a space for independent retail next to the university.

The top floors of the Hotel will give a great vantage point for taking pictures of the Manchester skyline. Hopefully that will eventually include River Street.

I guess the shops are pretty dingy but I've always found it a reasonably pleasant place to have lunch, I'll miss it in a way.

I won't miss having to traverse the steps on the ramp from Oxford Rd which have got to be among the worst in the city.

Look good to me. Can't be any worse that what Wilson and Womersley concocted in the 1970s. I'm guessing (judging from the renders) that the bridge will be taken down as well.

Wilson and Wamersley where also responsible for the Arndale and the Hulme crescents.

Can't blame them for experimenting in a rapidly changing world but i'm glad that many of their schemes no longer exist in their original form.

Indeed. The Hulme Crescents were bad. Likewise the flats at Ardwick. I could go on about those social housing developments (Park Hill too) for hours so let's not dwell.

Still can't get rid of those toilet tiles on the Arndale though eh? *sigh*

Noooo! I think I'm the only one who will mourn the loss of the precinct, when I first came to MCR it really struck out as being one the areas that made me feel like I was in a really big city (MCR is the 1st outside of London (in the UK) where I've had that feeling), I think its the walkway or something. I also dont like all the trees they'll loose, its a tad depressing, but the shops are sh!t - ditch them, but I wish they would leave the walkway so it still has a big city buzz!

- just been there on google maps, I wish they would just leave it as it is, I really like that area loads, shame they cant build the hotel and 2story MBS somewhere in the city that really needs it...

Bruntwood will be getting all the ground floor retail as part of the deal, so expect to see Tesco Metro, Phillpotts et al to the new Oxford Road elevation.

Hotel will be IHG Crowne Plaza (floors 1-10) and Staybridge long stay to upper floors. Existing university accommodation rooms to Booth Street will become academic offices.

The 16 storey four star hotel would provide high-quality accommodation for MBS’s overseas and executive education visitors and add to the high-end hotel offer in this part of Manchester. Crowne Plaza would occupy the first 10 floors of the hotel and Staybridge Suites would occupy the top 6 floors, with a shared reception, bar and restaurant on the ground floor.

Timescales

The MBS redevelopment scheme is proposed to be brought forward in two phases:

Phase 1 would see the construction of the Executive Education Centre and hotel. A planning application is expected in February 2013 and, should planning permission be obtained, construction would start in summer 2013 with completion in early 2015.

Phase 2 would see the wider refurbishment of the existing MBS buildings and the improvements to the public realm. A planning application for this phase of work is expected in April 2013 and should planning permission be obtained, the works would begin in spring 2014 with completion in late 2017.

Good stuff, thanks jrb. What's nice is that this isn't one of those speculative schemes that falls at the first financial hurdle.

Shame it ain't a bit taller, eh?

Hopefully we'll get something tall on the old BBC site slightly further down. Taller buildings like this will help expand the city center vibe further up Oxford road - attract more non uni people into the shops as well. Good news.
