Manchester Apartment Hotel Opening 2020

Last updated: 8 March 2019

We have received planning consent for our new 41 unit serviced apartment hotel in Manchester to open in 2020.

The hotel is on the corner of Chorlton Street and Canal Street. We are going to regenerate a magnificent city centre building – a former cotton warehouse – that has been empty for several years and add a rooftop extension with duplex penthouses.

Our new apartment hotel will occupy the building's upper ground floor and the floors above . A separate operator for the lower ground floor restaurant/bar space (formerly View) will be confirmed next year.

The build process will take just over a year and we're starting work in Spring 2019. We'll be posting developments here and also on our Instagram, Facebook and Twitter accounts.

"The building is a real gem, a classic Manchester warehouse, with tonnes of character,” said Paul Taylor, co-founder of Staying Cool. "It is a perfect location for a design-led apartment hotel by Staying Cool. ”We are especially pleased to be opening in Manchester as it is the city where our story began,” continued Paul Taylor.

Phil Burke, Chair of Village Licenced Businesses Association said: ‘We are really excited about bringing Staying Cool into the Village Quarter and reinvigorating this fantastic building for a new lease of life as a boutique apartment hotel.’’

Once home to Oliver Peyton’s Mash & Air in the 1990s, the warehouse was acquired by the Cringle Corporation. In January this year, Staying Cool won a competitive tender, led by Nick Huddleston of CBRE, to find the right hotel or serviced apartment operator.The architects on the scheme are Halliday Meecham and Euan Kelly Property Solutions, the planning consultants. Staying Cool was advised by Tony Bray of Pure Real Estate Solutions
