New “Malmaison” Hotel proposed for Manchester City Centre

Proposals to establish a 70-bedroom hotel in a Manchester city centre property which was built in 1955 are back in front of planners after being deferred.

The building was previously used for Office Space, but now lies empty. The space is now being proposed as a 70 bed Hotel, and is currently pushing for planning permission to be approved.

Also included in the plans is a rooftop bar.

Malmaison, trading as Hotel du Vin, is the proposed operator, with the company already behind a venue near Piccadilly Station.

The application went before Manchester City Council’s planning committee with a recommendation for approval in August but was deferred to allow for a site visit.

A report to the authority’s planning committee – which is due to meet on 19 September 2019 – said: “Officers have worked with the applicant in a positive and pro-active manner to seek solutions to problems arising in relation to dealing with the planning application.

“A hotel would be consistent with national and local planning policy, and would promote a quality neighbourhood, economic development and sustainable travel patterns. It would fulfil an important role in providing hotel accommodation within the city centre.

“It would be consistent with GM Strategy’s key growth priorities and meet the demands of a growing economy and population, in a well-connected location within a major employment centre. It would therefore help to promote sustained economic growth.”

Approval has been recommended.
