A developer has unveiled plans to create a new four-storey hotel and restaurant in Manchester’s Northern Quarter.
Agecroft has submitted plans to transform a site on 52-52 Thomas Street into a new mixed development, including a 26-bedroom boutique hotel and bar-restaurant.
Designed by Manchester-based GA Studio, the two businesses will be separate entities but operate within a series of interlinking buildings of between four and five-storeys.
The restaurant will operate on the ground level and basement, while the hotel will have an entrance on Kelvin Street and operate over all floors.
Plans are also reported to include a roof garden subject to approval.
Agecroft bosses said they have been trying to develop the site for the last 20 years, unable to make it work until now.
Speaking to Manchester Evening News, spokesperson said it was going to a ‘delicate operation’ but with the finance secured, they said the plan now just needed the ‘green light’.
It is hoped a planning application will go before the council’s committee in June.
