Hotel Indigo Manchester – Victoria Station is preparing to open its doors following the completion of the £30m project and hand-over of the site to the hotel group Intercontinental Hotels Group (IHG).
Positioned at the gateway of the Northern Quarter, near Victoria Station, the 187-room boutique hotel offers guests luxurious city centre accommodation. Designed by local architects, 3DReid, the building aligns the historic architecture of the Grade II listed City Buildings with a stunning 14 story rotunda tower.
The completion of the project marks a major milestone for the developer BH Group. The £30m project has taken two years to complete and at its peak had 160 people working on it. In addition to the investment the project has created more than 80 jobs in the running of the hotel and restaurant.
James Houlston, managing director of BH Group said: “We are delighted with the outcome of this project, 3D Reid has created a truly iconic building which, with its pivotal location at the gateway to the NOMA project, will become a recognised landmark for the city centre.
“The contractor, Bowmer and Kirkland has done a great job. We took on a complex project with a number of challenges and they have demonstrated their expertise and professionalism with the delivery of a fabulous building, hats off to them!”
Neil Brook, regional director north west, of Bowmer and Kirkland added: “This project has been a complex one for us, but we are delighted to reach practical completion and are really looking forward to visiting the hotel when it opens.”
