The hotel is some sort of sick joke. :cry:
The hotel is exactly the same as what was shown in the consultation. They obviously got favorable remarks. :nuts:

Peel and Glenbrook reveal Cornbrook hotel and resi plans

29 Nov 2017, 11:23

The proposed Chester Road development by a joint venture between Peel and Glenbrook is likely to be 14 storeys tall at its highest point.
One frickin person? From Planning Statement.

Nine written responses were received during the exhibition. Overall, these responses were generally positive with five of the respondents (56%) stating they were supportive of the proposals. Three respondents (33.33%) were undecided, and one respondent (11%) was unsupportive.
Well thats a relief. Phew.

I honestly don't mind the Flats. Quite like them in fact. The materials are pretty decent, I don't think the visuals do them justice. Its the material of choice again for the main cladding - anodized aluminium. Think the fair faced concrete against the anodized aluminium will look rather striking, especially with those copper lines. That balustrade is atrocious though. That should be glass.

They are storing masses of stuff on this site. Stuff for Trilogy by the looks of it.

Sounds like we will shortly be getting two more cranes at Cornbrook.

Prepping the bases at Cornbrook, new additions for the #Manchester crane survey coming soon!
Those site cabins over at Cornbrook Works also look new.
I've always wondered how these blocks will be positioned in relation to the neighbouring developments. With this and Cornbrook Works now u/c, this part of town is really starting to bulk up.

Taken from the planning app.

What a fantastic picture. mmcneillphotography Twitter

You can have a good gander at the apartments here. Very reasonably priced.
