It’s been revealed that a new restaurant, hotel and cafe are set to arrive in Manchester next year, according to its owners.
A new ‘celebrity-chef led’ restaurant and 187-bedroom hotel is being created next to the city’s Victoria station, spearheaded by BH Group, a specialist in commercial spaces.
The building, previously known as City Buildings, will be the gateway site to the NOMA development, an £800m, 20 acre mixed-use redevelopment scheme in Manchester that is focused on revitalising and opening the northern area of the city centre.
This is not BH Group’s first venture into Greater Manchester, having completed developments at The Embankment in Stockport and Christie Fields in South Manchester.
When finished, the development will be 14 storeys high and will provide 187 bedrooms, with a large restaurant and bar.
The name of the celebrity chef, and details regarding the restaurant and café, are being kept under wraps until next year.
James Houlston, founder and managing director of BH Group, said: “Several years ago we made a significant shift in strategy away from the small business unit market and diversified into two new sectors: renewable energy, via our sister company BH EnergyGap, and hospitality.
“Our development in Manchester, which is on track to open in September 2018, is one of a number of projects we are currently developing, and forms part of our overall long term strategy to create a portfolio of hotels and other income-producing assets.”
