Buttress Architects have been appointed by EasyHotel to create their flagship hotel in Manchester. Bradley House, Manchester’s ‘Flatiron’ will be converted to a new 114 room hotel and help to continue the regeneration of the route between Piccadilly Gardens and Ancoats.
The elegant and strong Grade II Listed late Georgian building was created as a shipping warehouse for textile Wholesaler Kessler and Co. Bradley House has a distinctive shape formed by a simple slant in the city grid.
Buttress’ Managing Director Gavin Sorby said: “We are looking forward to introducing a very engineered hotel product to the rough edges of the Listed Building. It is an exciting project in a great location and the finished hotel promises to be quite special.”
EasyHotel’s Chief executive Simon Champion said: “Following so soon after our recent success in securing premises to develop an easyHotel in Liverpool, we are delighted to be investing in another vibrant city.
“Manchester has substantial international tourism, good economic growth potential, a large population and successful, internationally-renowned universities.
“We expect this new easyHotel to attract a variety of leisure and business customers looking for good quality accommodation at an affordable price and look forward to being a part of the city’s ongoing success.”
