Plans for the second phase of a major city centre residential project reaching up to 34 storeys have been lodged.
Manchester-based developer Nikal is seeking permission to build 375 apartments and a new hotel at Exchange Square.
This latest application come two years after council chiefs approved plans for 223 apartments and 25,000 sq ft of retail on the site in The Priory Queensway but construction work never actually started on the second phase.
In December, Nikal announced it had agreed a £77 million funding deal with residential landlord Grainger and was completely revising the project, followed in February by the news it had secured Premier Inn as the hotel's operator.
Nikal wants to build two residential towers, reaching up to 30 and 34 storeys, which will be separated by a glazed column and will face Moor Street station and the new HS2 terminal in Curzon Street.
The hotel will have 235 bedrooms, across two blocks of seven and 14 storeys respectively, and a 6,000 sq ft Bar + Block restaurant.
There will also be 7,500 sq ft of retail space, 63 undercroft car parking spaces and initial designs for 'New City Square', a public space linking Exchange Square with the neighbouring McLaren office Building.
Manchester-based architecture practice Stephenson Studio has designed the second phase.
Nikal's development director Darren Jones said: "It's a delight to be able to reveal our designs for the final phase of Exchange Square.
"We have a long-standing relationship with this city and are immensely proud of what we have achieved."
If Nikal's revised plans are approved, work on phase two could commence this year with completion scheduled for 2022.
The new application follows more than two years of construction of phase one at Exchange Square, comprising 603 apartments, a residents' club and roof garden.
The apartments were built across three blocks of seven, 14 and 27 storeys and the entire complex is due for completion in November.
Known as 'Allegro Living', the development was forward funded by LaSalle Investment Management valued at around £105 million.
This will complete Nikal's long-running project to regenerate the land around what was once the Masshouse Circus traffic island.
Earlier phases saw residential blocks Masshouse and The Hive built.
