Galleries redevelopment set to welcome Hilton
Wigan Council and development partner Cityheart have signed a franchise agreement with Hilton for a 144-bedroom hotel, part of the £135 million redevelopment of the Galleries.

Designed by JM Architects, the Hampton by Hilton branded hotel will be a six-storey building located off Market Street in Wigan’s town centre and will be managed and operated by Leaf Hospitality.

The hotel bedrooms will be complemented by a gym on level one overlooking the new square with the main reception area and dining space on the ground floor. Leaf Hospitality anticipates employing more than 60 staff at the new hotel, providing a range of job opportunities for local residents.

The announcement is the latest development for the multi-phase regeneration scheme since demolition work was concluded on time in February and main contractor Galliford Try was announced for phase one last week.
