[First look] Formroom Architects has submitted a planning application for this new ‘boutique’ hotel in Manchester
Refurbishing two Grade II-listed buildings and creating a new build extension, the scheme features 39 bedrooms and a ground floor restaurant.
Located on Liverpool Road in the Castlefield Conservation Area directly opposite the Manchester Museum of Science and Industry, the project aims to retain interior ‘historic features’ of the buildings.
Commissioned by Liverpool-based property developer Iliad, the scheme is expected to go before Manchester City Council planning committee in May.
Tim Groom, managing director at Formroom, said: ‘The Liverpool Road hotel has been a fantastic project to work on.
‘As well as the pride associated with working on such an interesting scheme in our home city, the project presented a number of exciting challenges, including the conversion and conservation of a listed building, and creating a new build extension that complements the existing period architecture.’
