New Premier Inn set for Salford city centre

A 143-bedroom Premier Inn is to be developed in Salford, as part of a £650m scheme to transform the centre of the city.

The £12.5m New Bailey development, supported by English Cities Fund (ECF), will be built on a half-acre site at the corner of Irwell Street and Stanley Street, facing south to the River Irwell. It will include a restaurant, bar and café.

The hotel with its layering of three primary elements of glazed curtain walling, red sandstone and charcoal brick has been designed by RHWL Architects.

Phil Mayall, development director at ECF, said: "This announcement is a great boost to the scheme. New Bailey will be the commercial quarter at the heart of the Salford Central development and the new Premier Inn will sit very well in supporting this.

"With the planning application now approved, and agreement with Premier Inn finalised, we are looking forward to work beginning on site."

Intended to create a a more pedestrian-friendly, safer, calmer environment for local people, businesses and visitors, the development - when complete - will create 390 hotel create rooms, 849 new homes, 222,000 sq m of office, retail and leisure space and 11,000 new jobs.
