Staying Cool has announced the Cotton Yard as the name of its new 41-unit apartment hotel due to open on the Chorlton and Canal Street site in the heart of Manchester’s Village.
Offering a mix of studios and suites over four floors of the existing building, together with eight duplex penthouses in a new rooftop extension, the build project will take approximately 12 months and see the first guests arrive through its doors in September 2020.
Paul Taylor, Staying Cool’s joint-managing director, said: “The building was a former cotton finishing yard, so the name Cotton Yard just made sense. We also think it has a nice ring to it. Built in various stages between the late 19th and the early 20th Centuries, it’s a stunner of a building, which we are really excited to be bringing back to life after years of neglect. It is a perfect location for a design-led apartment hotel.
“We’re delighted to be able to confirm that the Cotton Yard is out of the starting gates and a few steps closer to being brought back to life in Manchester – the city where our story began.”
