Work begins on third Manchester Staycity aparthotel

Fast-expanding Dublin-based Staycity Group has awarded a £17m contract to Bardsley Construction to deliver an aparthotel in New Cross, Manchester

The eight-storey aparthotel located on Mason Street, New Cross, will provide a total of 224 rooms via 48 one-bed and 176 studio apartments.

Work has begun on the development, which will include a reception, cafe and gym, with completion due in December 2019.

The new venue represents the third Staycity aparthotel in Manchester alongside its other properties at Laystall Street and Manchester Piccadilly.

Bardsley is already providing a 172-room hotel with gym, cafe, restaurant, conference and meeting facilities for AC Hotels by Marriot, part of Marriott International, on a neighbouring site bounded by Mason Street and Cable Street, via a £15.5m contract with Axcel Hospitality.
