UK: Native will operate a refurbished aparthotel on Manchester’s Ducie Street, which will reopen in spring 2019.

Native, restaurateurs Pablo Flack and David Waddington of Bistrotheque, and fitness company BLOK will open London Warehouse next year in the former Place Aparthotel building. Owner Capital & Centric secured planning permission for its refurbishment of the building in October 2016.

The refurbished property will feature 166 units, a Bistrotheque restaurant on the ground floor, lounge, coffee counter, mini cinema, bar, meeting rooms, private dining and outdoor terraces.

BLOK will "bring together fitness, art, design and fashion" with its first gym outside of London.

Guy Nixon, founder and CEO of Native, said: "Design and cultural collaboration are at the heart of Native's approach to creating unique experiences for our guests. The purchase of the former Place Aparthotel has been a sector defining opportunity for us to work with the industry's best creatives, architects and designers."

Pablo Flack of Bistrotheque added: "Having grown up in Huddersfield, Manchester exerted a very strong pull on me in my formative years. It's a city with a keen sense of self and strong cultural foundations. It's also an exciting city to be in right now and we hope that we can become just one small piece in, what I think of as, a dynamic jigsaw."
