Patrizia purchased the hotel as part of its acquisition of the First Street site in Manchester in May 2015. The site is a 20-acre development that includes office, residential, retail and leisure components. Notably, this sale is the first at the development. 

Further First Street development phases will provide a new commercial neighbourhood for Manchester with a total of almost 1m sq ft of sustainable, campus-style office buildings, alongside a new residential neighbourhood of up to 500 PRS apartments.
