Create Developments, a sister concern of Create Construction, has received planning consent for the construction of the £48m Hampton by Hilton hotel in Trafford, Greater Manchester, in the UK.
The consent came after Create Developments tweaked its initial building design post-initial rejection by the council.
The new hotel will be a seven-storey, 147-bedroom structure, located beside the Trafford Centre and Trafford Park. It will also provide easy access to the five-mile distant Manchester city centre and the 10-mile distant Manchester airport.
Hampton by Hilton in Trafford, Manchester will offer its guests quality accommodation and best-in-class facilities that complement the existing hotel brands in the neighbourhood.
Create Developments CEO Paul Mathison said: “As experts in hotel development, we are delighted to be working with Hilton once again. Our first Hampton by Hilton hotel development in Blackpool has been so successful, that we are now planning an extension to double its footprint. This new development project in Trafford comes at an exciting period of growth, when Manchester is experiencing a phenomenal construction boom.
“We are very excited to be starting on site soon. This substantial £48M project comes at a time where growth and investment will be key in our bounce-back from the pandemic. The approval of the new plans will also help to protect and create new construction jobs and apprenticeships, as well as deliver over 40 new hospitality jobs for local people.”
Inspired by the architecture of traditional mills in the northwest of England, the new hotel will have a distinguished brick-faced exterior. However, the interior will sport a bright modern look with the ambience reflecting the rich industrial background and the sporting heritage of the area.
Create Construction plans on beginning building works in the third quarter of 2021, with estimated build duration of 75 weeks.
