New Hotel The Cotton Yard Is Coming to Canal Street
Staying Cool announced the Cotton Yard as the name of its new 41-unit apartment hotel, as construction commenced on the Chorlton and Canal Street site in the heart of Manchester’s Village. Offering a mix of studios and suites over four floors of the existing building, together with eight duplex penthouses in a new rooftop extension, the building project will take approximately 12 months and see the first guests arrive through its doors in September 2020.
Paul Taylor, Staying Cool’s Joint-Managing Director said “The building was a former cotton finishing yard, so the name Cotton Yard just made sense. We also think it has a nice ring to it,”

“Built in various stages between the late 19th and the early 20th centuries, it’s a stunner of a building, which we are really excited to be bringing back to life after years of neglect. It is a perfect location for a design-led apartment hotel.”
The apartment hotel on the corner of Canal Street and Chorlton Street, within the Whitworth Street / Princess Street Conservation Area, was once home to Oliver Peyton’s innovative Mash & Air. The building was acquired by the Cringle Corporation and Staying Cool won a CBRE-led competitive tender to determine the development’s operator.
