UK: House of Fisher has submitted plans for a 39-key aparthotel in Farnborough town centre, Hampshire.

The proposals, submitted to Rushmoor Borough Council on May 4, include renovating and building on the site of the NatWest branch in Victoria Street. The development would see the construction of a large extension to the rear of the bank, which would house 21 of the suites, and an additional storey built on top of the current building. The three existing floors above the Natwest would be converted into the remaining 18 suites, if the plans are approved.

The aparthotel will feature a reception area on the ground floor, as well as a café, gym and client lounge. The accommodation would be made up of 11 studio rooms, 19 one-bedroom, seven two-bedroom and two three-bedroom suites, while around 31 parking spaces would be provided on site.

In a letter to the council, House of Fisher said: “The proposed 39-suite aparthotel at Lawrie House will enable provision of studios one, two and three-bedroom, two-bathroom suites which cater for a wide market. Typically the mix can meet the demands of the single traveller, sharers on project work who may be working to a fixed budget; equally the larger apartments may suit families on a corporate or leisure stay. Moreover, the scheme of this scale would enable the addition of central amenities such as a café/bar lounge, fitness room and co-working booths as well as crucial 'back of house' areas including storage, staff rest room, cleaning store, etc. All of these components are vital in order for this scheme to be attractive and successful. We believe this proposition to be complementary and perfect for the Farnborough market, in a sustainable location, within accessible walking distance from major employers, including facilities within the town centre as well as the train station.”
