The Iconic W Hotel

As part of this transformative project, a striking 162-room W Hotel will grace the development’s iconic 41-storey tower. Scheduled to open its doors in the first quarter of 2027, W Manchester promises to infuse the city with bold design, distinctive dining options, and an always-on programming ethos. Key features include The Living Room, WET deck, W Lounge, AWAY Spa, and FIT fitness centre.

Residents of W Residences will enjoy all the amenities and services of a W Hotel, including a 24-hour concierge service (W’s whenever/wherever service), in-residence dining available around the clock, as well as laundry and dry cleaning services.

Combining Residences, Hotel, and Office Space

The luxurious residences and hotel will complement 75,000 sq. ft of office space at No.2 St Michael’s, representing the development’s second phase. This phase is a result of a collaboration between Relentless Developments and Salboy. Meanwhile, No.1 St Michael’s, featuring nine floors of best-in-class office space, is set to become the city’s first fully Net Zero Carbon commercial development in terms of both operation and delivery.

W Residences Manchester marks a significant milestone as the brand’s first venture outside of London and one of only 20 worldwide. This globally renowned brand joins a roster of international companies at the St Michael’s development, including law firms Pinsent Masons and Hill Dickinson, and the Nikkei restaurant brand, Chotto Matte.

Setting New Standards

St Michael’s is poised to establish new benchmarks for quality, aesthetics, and experiences within the city. The development aims to become a prominent destination for work, leisure, and living.
