Chapman Taylor appointed as Architect for £20m development to extend MediaCityUK

MediaCityUK have submitted exciting plans to Salford City Council for a £20 million investment in a new phase of development for the mixed use media hub. Chapman Taylor are pleased to, once again, be selected by Peel Media Ltd as the lead architect for the development.

The proposals include the delivery of; a 11-storey building which will have 54,000 sq ft of creative office and studio space, with 4 floors occupied by a 112-bedroom Premier Inn hotel. The office space aims to meet the increasing demand for digital and media companies in the area, whilst the hotel further enhances MediaCityUK as a visitor destination.

Once approved construction will commence in early 2015, with the office scheme due for completion by late 2015 and the hotel opening in early 2016.

Stephen Wild, managing director of MediaCityUK, said: "Technology, media and creative is a rapidly growing sector in Greater Manchester, which itself is now considered the second largest creative and digital hub in Europe. MediaCityUK has been a key trigger in the explosion of creative start-ups and national relocations so it's essential that we give these businesses the right type of space and the flexibility to grow organically. Equally, as MediaCityUK’s business community has thrived and our leisure offering has grown, so has its reputation as a go-to destination. The arrival of a new hotel will service both those here doing business or visiting.”
