Supercity Aparthotels has purchased the Light aparthotel in Manchester's Northern Quarter as part of plans to expand in major cities.
Supercity have acquired the aparthotel as a going concern, and plans to relaunch it following refurbishment in 2018. The property is a mixed-use development of 172 apartments, 62 of which are operated as the Light aparthotel. A new general manager will be appointed shortly.
The move supports Supercity's growth ambitions to achieve a presence in major city locations, with openings already planned for London and Brighton next year.
Across 19 floors, the new property offers large, fully-equipped studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments, and a range of penthouse suites, including the platinum penthouse suite with private roof terrace and hot tub, all offering the flexibility of serviced apartment living with hotel-style service.
Dean Madge, managing director of Supercity Aparthotels, said: "I'm truly delighted to announce that the Light aparthotel will be our first venture outside of London and our fourth aparthotel… We're encouraged with the recent visitor numbers published and the increased international flights which is establishing Manchester as a dual centre destination for those visiting the UK."
Supercity Aparthotels currently operates the Rosebery in Clerkenwell, London, and two Earl's Court properties: Templeton Place and Nevern Place.
