The UK’s first city-based wellbeing resort, Therme Manchester, is on track to begin construction this year.
Due to make its debut in Trafford City, Therme promises to be a state-of-the-art spa and entertainment centre costing £250m and spanning around 28 acres.
Peel L&P has now finished clearing the site formerly occupied by the EventCity conference and exhibition centre on Barton Dock Road in preparation for the flagship development.
The brand-new venture will feature hundreds of water-based activities including a wave pool, water slides, indoor and outdoor pools, steam rooms, exotic palm trees and relaxation areas making it the perfect staycation spot. What’s more, the scale of the project will offer a range of upcoming job roles, providing a boost to the local economy at a time when it’s needed most.
Other features include a dedicated adults area with swim-up bars, therapeutic mineral pools, saunas, botanical gardens and a range of water-based fitness classes which will be conducted on-site, including yoga and pilates.
Alongside a wealth of wellbeing treatments, Therme will feature vibrant collages of nature and art installations, and a selection of cutting-edge technology to create a venue the likes of which has yet to be seen in the UK.
There are also plans for an education centre at Therme Manchester for schools and community groups to learn about nature and sustainability. Plus, access to local cycleway and paths will be improved, including to the neighbouring Bridgewater Canal.
James Whittaker, Peel L&P’s Executive Director of Development said: “Therme Manchester is a landmark development for the North and something the UK has never seen before.
“It’s incredibly exciting to see the land being prepared to welcome the resort to TraffordCity and we’re proud to help bring such an amazing attraction to the North West which we know will be enjoyed by so many people across the country whether it’s for a fun family day out, relaxation or educational trips.”
