Supercity, a well-established apart-hotel owner operator is opening its fourth property in London and second in Manchester. These acquisitions support Supercity's plans to expand to key UK cities.
Situated on Norwich Street near Chancery Lane, The Chronicle is Supercity's fourth London property will comprise a total of 53 studio, one and two-bedroom suites. The property will offer 35,000 sq. ft of unique spaces including two floors of high-spec offices, an on-site gastro pub, and fitness room for residents.
The development was designed by Rolfe Judd architects and features a mix of old and new facades. The existing envelope of The Castle pub is to be retained and incorporated into the modern elevations either side, forming a development which provides both an elegant and sympathetic response within its area setting.
Launching in the Northern Quarter of Manchester following a complete refit is their property on Church Street, formally known as The Light Boutique apart-hotel. This property will provide 68 one and two-bedroom suites. Inspired by the local area, the apart-hotel features bold interiors, rich in bohemian style yet staying true to Supercity's renowned blend of luxury and comfort.
Design work was curated by artist David Schmidt and includes the iconic 'worker bees' on the walls as well as graffiti photography by Ari Sturm. A few of the suites have private roof terraces and balconies with panoramic views of the city.
Ben Davis, Director at Saxbury commented: “These properties are typical examples of the high-quality builds and refurbishments that we have come to expect by Roger Walters at Supercity. A perfect combination of style and simplicity with the added benefits of fully equipped kitchens in every suite and round the clock security.”
These types of expansions are exactly what we're expecting from the serviced apartment sector and confirm our findings that 70% of operators are planning new properties across the UK.
