PLANS SUBMITTED FOR 143 BEDROOM HOTEL
Date published: Friday, 12 April 2013
ECf has submitted plans to Salford City Council (11 April 2013) for a new 143 bedroom hotel on Plot A4 of the Salford Central masterplan. You can see the plans and illustrations here.
The hotel will be the first new building in the New Bailey area of the masterplan, occupying a corner position on Irwell Street and Stanley Street, next to the River Irwell and Irwell Street Bridge. A seven-storey building, the hotel will be finished in red sandstone, black charcoal brick and glass, and it will begin the process or rebuilding the heart of the city centre.
Even though the plans have been submitted to the Council your views are still sought. You can have your say directly with the Council by writing or emailing them ([url

This is another step to bring new development to Salford Central and we hope to receive your support to help us build the new future for the city centre.

24th April 2013
PLANS have been submitted for a seven-storey, 143-bed hotel on the banks of the River Irwell in Salford.
The English Cities Fund is behind the application, a joint venture between Muse Developments, Legal & General and The Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) which is responsible for the £650m Salford Central regeneration programme.
In a statement the fund said it was now in talks with a hotel operator for the £12.5m scheme on the corner of Irwell Street and Stanley Street - across the bridge from Quay Street.
The development will also include a restaurant and bar facilities, and there are future plans for a Grade A office.
Phil Mayall, development director at ECF, said: “The hotel development will act as a critical first scheme in New Bailey – an exciting extension to the commercial business district of the regional centre. New Bailey will provide high quality office space along with supporting retail, leisure and residential uses.
“With a planning application now submitted and agreement with a hotel operator nearing completion, we are confident that New Bailey will quickly follow the commencement of development on Chapel Street.”
