Tim Groom Architects designs first Hampton in Manchester

Construction of the proposed £30-million development is scheduled to begin in Q4 of 2016.

Create Developments was granted planning permission to start the redevelopment of the vacant site bound by Rochdale Road and Sharp Street in Manchester, England, with a 221-guestroom Hampton by Hilton.

The proposed £30 million development by Tim Groom Architects was designed with the environment in mind and will have a contemporary façade reflecting the surrounding buildings, plus low carbon emissions and energy requirements.

According to Tim Groom, managing director of Tim Groom Architects, the building will be inspired by the history and context of this part of Manchester and will showcase the industrial heritage of the city through fenestration pattern and architectural detail.
