Construction of a Tribe-branded scheme, featuring 412 rooms and suites, in the heart of Airport City Manchester’s ambitious new hotel district is now underway.

Another hospitality scheme has moved a step closer to becoming a reality at the biggest airport in northern England.

A new hotel scheme

Construction work has now started on the 412-key Tribe Manchester Airport, which is expected to open in Q1 2024. MY Construction was awarded the £42 million contract for this 24-month build in 2021.

It represents the third hotel to have started building work at the £1 billion Airport City Manchester development. Tribe’s first outpost in England will join previously announced properties from Holiday Inn and Ibis Budget, which are due to open this summer.

Yoav Tal, managing director of MY Construction, said: “We’re delighted to have been awarded this latest contract at Airport City Manchester. During the past 16 years, we’ve delivered over 2,500 keys of premium hotel developments across the country, so it’s great to be working with the Airport City Manchester development team and Accor on building what will be the first Tribe hotel in the UK.”

Gareth Jackson, group property managing director at Manchester Airports Group, added: “Seeing construction commence on our third hotel onsite is another fantastic landmark at Airport City Manchester. The hotel district is a key element of the development, providing a crucial amenity cluster between The Hut Group campus, the wider business district, and one of the UK’s busiest airports.

“Bringing Tribe to site demonstrates our ongoing commitment to catering for those quality and forward-thinking brands looking for the scale, opportunity and connectivity that Airport City Manchester offers occupiers and we’re looking forward to the hotel opening in 2024.”

Affordable style and experience

On completion, this new nine-storey Tribe hotel will comprise 412 rooms and suites, along with a restaurant and bar, gym and crew lounge for airline staff, allowing for convenient access to northern England’s largest airport. The property is being built at the foot of the £6 million pedestrian and cycle bridge connecting Airport City Manchester with Wythenshawe.

The hotel forms part of a developing hotel district, which will eventually be home to nine hotels offering more than 2,400 rooms. This project brings together a number of different contractors across design, project management and construction, including MY Construction, Faithful+Gould, Aecom, Dexter Moren Associates, Meinhardt, Rusupo and NBM.
