Stylish hotel rooms to regenerate an unloved corner

Piccadilly Hotel, Manchester
Copyright Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios

The corner site on Manchester's Piccadilly is long overdue for redevelopment. Pestana's elegant 4*plus hotel, with lounge bar and rooftop terrace will reinvigorate it, and act as a catalyst to regenerate the Newton Street gateway to the Northern Quarter.

The hotel will offer 150 rooms across three blocks: a new corner building, the refurbishment of the Grade II Listed Building known as the Halls Building, and a warehouse-style block to the back of Piccadilly that marries the three blocks together. The Piccadilly Tavern, which occupies the ground floor of the Listed Building will also be refurbished.

Street life

Vaulted archways wrap around the building and offer an honest representation of the repetitive nature of the hotel brief, resulting in a contextual, yet modern and refined façade.

Proposals extend beyond the buildings and into the public realm, where the pavement areas and treelined streets can create an open and welcoming space outside the hotel, whilst establishing a sense of safety at the busy corner.
