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
www.salford.gov.uk/planning[/url]) quoting the application reference 13/63136/FUL. You can also search their website for more information using the reference as a guide. Alternatively you can also contact Richard Purser, DPP (scheme planning consultants) either via email ([email protected]) or by telephone on 0161 247 8555.

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.




Some of you will remember this proposal from a few weeks back on the Central Salford thread. According to BusinessWeek, plans have now been submitted;

There will also be a new restaurant and potential for Grade-A office space, according to the article.

£12.5m hotel for Salford Central

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.”

Having said that it also looks like the one on Lower Mosely Street;




.. which isn't too bad.

Are we all agreed from the design that it's going to be a Premier Inn? Or did we already know that?
Correct the new hotel is going to be a Premier inn from what I have discovered today.

It looks like most modern Premier Inns. Not great but much better than the Boddingtons Holiday Inn or the Stay Inn behind it on the ringroad. Fills a hole.

Fills a hole! That sums up the architecture and development in this country over the past 50yrs fills a hole, make do and mend, accept and live with mediocrity. This sort of dross would never go up in France or many other parts of the continent where people expect better and design and quality is built in to most schemes to enhance an area/community.

You just have to look around you in every town, every city and high street in this country. Cheap mediocirty built for short term profit and sod local communities, sod style, sod quality. Fills a hole!

Here in Switzerland the built environment (and of course the natural environment) is so much better because people care. The architects care, the citizens care (young and old), the corporations care, the councils care. And it has NOTHING to do with money and how much you spend!

Having said that there are some shite buildings here too - but the quality of build, fixtures and fittings is so high. I live in an unrefurbished apartment that was built in 1904. It was warmer this winter than my 2 year old apartment in Manchester and the bills are far less because it uses far less electricity and gas.

Of course it's money! I've been to Switzerland. Geneva especially is very impressive. But anyone who knows anything about Switzerland knows that you cannot compare the UK to Switzerland! Fundamentally different in so many ways

The UK was the first country to industrialise and did so on a huge scale.

Post-industry we have a lot of inner city holes that need filling.
