Planning application submitted for Therme Manchester
News | 29 Nov '19
Therme Group has applied for planning permission for a unique wellbeing resort in TraffordCity.
Therme Group’s vision is to create the world’s most advanced wellbeing resorts, accessible to all, embodying a perfect interplay of nature, technology and culture.
The first of its kind in the UK, Therme Manchester uses natural forms and structures in its design to create a unique architectural concept. It will be a landmark development for the city and is set to become an iconic symbol of the north-west of England.
Therme Manchester will be an immersive experience to enhance the mind, body and soul. Visitors will have the chance to unwind in a perfect tropical environment with turquoise, warm-water lagoons among spectacular botanical gardens.
Nature and water are at the heart of the experience, with exquisite design throughout. Guests will be able to enjoy everything from affordable luxury-class spa therapies, multi-sensorial saunas and therapeutic mineral pools to exciting wave pools, waterslides and many fun and healthy activities.
At 28-acres, the size of 19 football pitches, the expansive Therme Manchester site is located in TraffordCity, opposite intu Trafford Centre and Barton Square, with the new Metrolink station directly outside.
A relaxing bio-diverse environment
Public spaces around the development will be transformed into a relaxing natural bio-diverse environment. With sustainability a top priority, new cycle paths and footpaths will open up the area and provide improved connectivity around TraffordCity and with the neighbouring Bridgewater Canal.
Therme Manchester is being developed in close collaboration with Peel L&P on the current site of EventCity, which will be relocated and redeveloped as a new state-of-the-art events venue in TraffordCity.
An affordable holiday every day
At the heart of Therme Manchester is a bio-diverse garden for all seasons, designed in the form of a rose with petal-shaped terraces and beautiful pools. This central aspect of the design acts as a focal point for socialising, learning and discovery and creates a link between the four areas.
Art and its role in spiritual wellbeing is central to Therme Manchester. Collaboration with world-class artists, based on the Therme Art programme, and an extensive programme of permanent and temporary installations will promote discovery and wonder, contemplation, playfulness, and engagement with others.
Therme Manchester is scheduled to open in 2023, bringing the opportunity for an affordable holiday every day to the communities it serves.
