Make Architects' new premiere five star hotel and residence for Manchester 

Manchester will soon have a new premiere five star hotel and luxury residential address. Simply called "The Manchester" it will be located within the award winning Spinningfields development. The Manchesters' lower 12 floors will be dedicated to a full service, 200-room premier hotel complete with conference facilities, restaurant, bar and lounge as well as an exclusive spa and health club. The upper 12 floors will be occupied by some 200 privileged residential apartments with private entrance but full access to all hotel services. The Manchester has been designed by Make Architects, the architectural practice set up by Ken Shuttleworth, designer of London's famous Swiss Re tower. Similarly conceived as an iconic tower, its sinuous design and soaring curves are destined to become a city landmark at northern gateway to Spinningfields. One of two hotels planned for the development, The Manchester will complement the premium offering of haute couture and fine dining within Spinningfields and also be a valuable asset for the top flight financial and professional services companies occupying the 2.37 million sq ft of office space. Spinningfields developer, Allied London is currently inviting expressions of interest in the hotel from operators and investors.
