Plans to revive two of Manchester’s iconic buildings

Plans to revive two of Manchester’s iconic buildings

Design proposals have been submitted to reinvigorate two of Manchester’s best loved buildings - London Road Fire Station and the Old Granada Studios at St. John’s.

The plans from Allied London and Levitt Bernstein are designed to reinvigorate the buildings, the surrounding neighbourhood and contribute to the city of Manchester.

The Grade II* listed Edwardian Baroque style London Road Fire Station, which had fallen into disrepair when Allied London purchased the building in 2015, will be sensitively refurbished and expanded to house a boutique hotel, bars, restaurants, workspace and apartments.

On the other side of the city, the Old Granada Studios will be re-imagined into a new mixed-use development at the gateway to the emerging Enterprise City at the St. John’s neighbourhood.

The former Granada House will be converted into a 210-room hotel with restaurant and bar areas on the ground floor and rooftop. A new ‘glowing box’ structure will house the new restaurant atop the building, constructed on a network of fine columns to create a sense that it is floating above the hotel.

The two projects are due to start on site later in 2017.
