Planning permission has been secured for two hotels immediately adjacent to Terminal 2 at Manchester Airport which will form part of a £180m hotel district at Airport City Manchester.
Holiday Inn and Ibis Budget have signed deals to open 280-bed and 262-bed establishments, respectively, and now approval has been granted for the pair of seven storey buildings. The 1.5-acre application site will incorporate about 285,250 sq ft of space across the two hotels.
Construction is expected to start in early 2019 with completion scheduled for the first quarter of 2021, which will create in the region of 250 jobs.
Joint venture partners at Airport City Manchester will act as the developer on behalf of P1 Hotels, a consortium of highly-experienced hospitality industry specialists.
The newly approved hotels form part of a wider £1bn transformation programme and the planning permission follows consent being secured earlier this year for the creation of a 375-bed and 254-bed hotel on a site located adjacent to Manchester Airport's transport interchange.
The hotel district would comprise 1,171 rooms and support the creation of about 500 jobs.
The professional team includes ICA as architect; Faithful & Gould as project manager/employers agent; Meinhardt as structural, services and sustainability engineer; NBM as cost consultant; Rusupo as project manager/client's representative; Manchester Airports Group as planner, and Aecom as highways engineer.
