£20M Hotel, Offices & Film Studios Media City

Hotel, offices and film studios planned in £20m Media City development

A new hotel is planned for Media City at Salford as part of a £20m development.

The 112-bed Premier Inn, new offices and studio space for the film and digital industries would be included in the development by The Peel Group.

The proposed 100,000 sq ft, 10-storey building, on Broadway, will have four floors dedicated to the hotel - while the remaining six will be for companies.

As well as being home to the BBC, ITV, Coronation Street and the University of Salford, more than 200 smaller media and tech companies are now based at MediaCityUK.

The managing director of MediaCityUK, Stephen Wild, said: “Technology, media and creative is a rapidly growing sector in Greater Manchester, which itself is now considered the second-largest creative and digital hub in Europe.

“MediaCityUK has been a key trigger in the explosion of creative start-ups and national relocations, so it’s essential that we give these businesses the right type of space and the flexibility to grow organically.

“Equally, as MediaCityUK’s business community has thrived and our leisure offering has grown, so has its reputation as a go-to destination. The arrival of a new hotel will service both those here doing business or visiting.”

Nick Johnston, acquisitions manager for Whitbread Hotels and Restaurants, said: "We are excited to be proposing a new 112-bedroom Premier Inn in MediaCityUK.

"MediaCityUK is a vibrant and fast-growing digital and media hub and our proposals would drive a further £7m of fresh investment into the area and create 40 new jobs, around half of which would be offered to those who are long-term unemployed.

“Our proposals would provide high-quality and affordable accommodation to business and leisure visitors in this fantastic location. We look forward to Salford city council’s decision."

Once approved construction will commence at the end of this year and will be due for completion by late 2015 and the hotel will open early 2016.

The proposals are to be considered by Salford council’s planning panel on Thursday and town hall officers are recommending approval.
