“We have worked closely with Manchester City Council and our design team to create a luxury townhouse hotel within the King Street conservation area. We are very grateful to the city’s planning department for their support and guidance. I remain heavily involved in the project on a daily basis to ensure the concept we have devised is made a reality and hopefully welcomed by the public”
