Ibis Hotel Manchester

A new 150-bed budget hotel, also providing 11,000sqft of retail and 60,000sqft of Cat A office space, over two phases.

The client employed Ridge to fulfil the role of Development Manager, transferring responsibility for the negotiation and development of the lease terms with Accor.

One of the major challenges involved was overcoming complicated traffic management and parking issues encountered as a consequence of introducing a mixed-use scheme to a tight city-centre site.

As a gateway site, local planners specified that the project should deliver a scheme of high quality architecture. This was achieved while maintaining the tight budget associated with a budget hotel.
