UK: Native Manchester, an aparthotel in the city’s Northern Quarter, will open its doors next week.

Occupying six floors of a Grade II-listed Victorian warehouse on Ducie Street, the property has 166 apartments and eight penthouses with private outdoor terraces.

Rooms types include studios and one- and two-bedroom apartments, all with fully-equipped kitchens.

The Manchester warehouse was redesigned by Archer Humphryes Architects - interiors have cast-iron columns and exposed brickwork, alongside bright blue and red furniture.

The mixed-use building will also host a new social hub called Cultureplex, which will include a restaurant, a mini cinema, bar, coffee counter and flexible event and work spaces. Fitness brand Blok will open their first studio outside of London in the property.

Guy Nixon, founder and CEO of Native said: “With over 180,000 square feet of space, this has been an extraordinary opportunity to take one of the great icons of Manchester’s industrial past and turn it into a major cultural and social destination for the city. We have worked closely with Archer Humphreys to make the most of the original features of the warehouse, preserving the huge glass atrium, the brick arches and thundering iron columns evoking the grandeur of Manchester’s industrial heritage.”
