Signature Living is expanding quickly, with hotels already in development in some of the most exciting towns in the UK, and now we’re turning our attention to one of the North’s most influential cities to create our first Manchester hotel.
The Plans for Our Manchester Hotel
In partnership with fellow Liverpool-based property developer Iliad Group, we have just submitted the planning application to turn the former Commercial Hotel in Castlefield into a 39 room development.
The buildings, 123-125 Liverpool Road, are both grade II listed buildings and we plan to continue our ethos of transforming protected buildings into luxury hotels and developments that people of the city can enjoy.
Our Manchester hotel will be no different. Although the proposed plans request to demolish some features, these features are not part of the original building. The protected building will be carefully and sensitively restored to make the Manchester hotel a beacon for tourism in the area.
Developing in Manchester
Creating a Manchester hotel has always been a dream of Signature Living’s, as an important city in the north and a hub of tourist activity, it was only logical that we’d eventually bring our unique flair to the city.
Castlefield, in the south-west of the city centre, is the industrial heart of Manchester that has been transformed into a trendy and attractive area.
Being close to Deansgate and within easy reach of all the shopping and nightlife on offer, it makes the perfect location for our very first Manchester Hotel.
Residential Accommodation in Manchester
Earlier this year, we also submitted plans for our first residential development outside of Liverpool, at Victoria Mill in the thriving Miles Platting area.
Featuring one and two-bed apartments with the signature touch throughout, with residents benefitting from a 24-hour concierge service and with great transport links to the city centre.
Experts in Restoring Listed Buildings
This isn’t the first time we’ve taken on the task of restoring a listed building to its former glory. 30 James Street in Liverpool, the former home of White Star Line’s headquarters, was a shadow of its former self and now stand proud once again as one of the most beautiful buildings on Liverpool’s waterfront.
We also took on the mammoth task of transforming The Coal Exchange in Cardiff, the building was in a desperate state after being left to rot. It is now the premier destination for a luxury stay in the city after Signature Living lovingly restored it into The Exchange Hotel.
Manchester Hotel Job Opportunities
The plans are still in the early stages of development, but we pride ourselves on the people that help to make our guest’s experience truly unforgettable.
The Manchester hotel will create plenty of jobs in Manchester. With an internal construction team, service staff, waiting on staff, bartenders and porters all paramount to the successful running.
