18-24 Princess Street, Manchester
18-24 Princess Street, Manchester
Yet another of Manchester's outstanding warehouses, this one grandly faced in stone so someone clearly had a bit of money. Perhaps Mr Dugdale, for Pevsner reckons it was Dugdale's warehouse. Built c1877-78, almost certainly to the designs of illustrious local firm, Clegg & Knowles. Pevsner calls the style "free European Gothic", and picks out the "striking open arcaded parapet and tall chimneys." The latter are prodigious and the feature which first catches the eye. Grade II listed.
It is one of a sequence of particularly fine warehouses on this street, each occupying a whole block.
It is currently the Arora hotel.
