Ask prepares planning application for Manchester Staycity aparthotel

George Sell George Sell Uploaded 08 October 2018


UK: Developer Ask Real Estate is preparing to submit plans for a 21-storey Staycity aparthotel in the Deansgate area of Manchester.

Designed by SimpsonHaugh Architects, Ask's proposals for 325-327 Deansgate will include 310 aparthotel units. The site sits within an emerging cluster of tall buildings around the Deansgate transport interchange, including Axis, 10-12 Whitworth Street West and Viadux.

The new building will incorporate the existing Deansgate Pub, which will be retained and will remain open throughout the project. Subject to planning, Ask plans to start construction next summer.

A development agreement has been signed with Staycity to build out the project, subject to planning approval, making it the operator's fourth site in the city. It already operates an aparthotel in the Lazy S building by Piccadilly Station, while a further two are under construction: one at Three St Peter's Square, built by Russells, and another in Ancoats, being built by Bardsley.
