Staycity has received planning permission for the development of its fourth property in Manchester, in the city’s Deansgate area.
The 21-storey, 310-apartment scheme, being developed by Ask Real Estate, will consist of 246 studios and 64 one-bed apartments with a gym and laundrette.
Simon Walford, UK director of development at Staycity, commented: “It’s an exciting time for Staycity in Manchester, as we further expand our portfolio and this property will be positioned in a strategic location on one of the city’s most important streets.
“Manchester is a hugely important location for Staycity, with its eclectic blend of business and leisure guests and its vibrant arts and cultural scene. Our collaborative, community-focused approach to accommodation is in keeping with what Manchester stands for – we’re proud to be expanding our presence in this great city and look forward to working with the Ask team.”
John Hughes, managing director at Ask Real Estate, said: “We’re pleased to be able to bring forward these plans and help to meet the projected demand for city centre apart-hotel space.
“The scheme looks impressive and will add to the compelling architectural mix already found within the area – the landmark Beetham Tower, the modern skyscrapers of Deansgate Square, and the character and heritage of Castlefield Basin and Deansgate’s older buildings.”
