The job will be Anglo Holt’s 53rd national project for Travelodge and its third in Greater Manchester.
Work on the 156-bed Travelodge hotel marks the second phase of development at Radclyffe Park, LPC Living’s £50m mixed-use development in Ordsall, Salford.
Construction of the first phase, comprising a Morrisons supermarket, a dozen retail units, 79 new homes and a 357 space car park, commenced in October 2010 following the appointment of Trafford Park-based Russells Construction.
The first milestones have already been reached with the steel frame of the supermarket now finished and foundations to the first 17 houses complete.
Simon Ashdown, development director at LPC Living said: “Anglo Holt has a proven track record of delivering projects for Travelodge on time and to budget so they were a natural choice for us.
“With the supermarket frame now completed and work starting on the seven-storey hotel, Radclyffe Park is shaping up to become one of the most prominent schemes in the Quays area.
“This is particularly exciting for local residents and businesses who will be able to benefit from having improved amenities, services and facilities on their doorstep.”
Andy Elwell, Anglo Holt Construction’s managing director, said: “The investment by LPC Living is to be applauded in turning a vision into reality with the ongoing regeneration of Salford Quays.
“The Anglo Holt Construction team is delighted in being able to contribute to that vision by delivering the Travelodge hotel bringing a greater choice of value hotel accommodation for business visitors and tourists to the area.”
Radclyffe Park is the latest stage in the £150m transformation of Ordsall by LPC Living in partnership with Salford City Council.
In addition, to new retail and leisure facilities the development is anticipated to create around 500 new jobs.
Completion of the hotel scheme, designed by Liverpool based architects Falconer Chester Hall, is expected by autumn. Upon completion Travelodge will be leasing the building on a 25 year lease.
