UK: Prosperity capital has announced intent to start work on a city centre property in Liverpool later this year.

The group has secured planning consent to convert a Grade-II listed office building into a 33-room apart-hotel.

The group is working with architecture firm Cartwright Pickard, as well as planning consultancy WSP|Indigo to create a space with a fusion of large scale suites and one bedrooms. The space currently is unoccupied, save the two lower units which are occupied by a Greggs bakery and a DX courier office.

The group intends to place an accessible unit alongside these two commercial units. allowing for those with mobility issues to stay. The intent is also to ensure that the antique exterior of the building, designed by victorian architect GE Grayson, is maintained through development.

Becky Dewey, CEO of WSP|Indigo said: “Serviced apartments and aparthotels are the fastest growing sector of the UK’s accommodation market, offering business and leisure travellers facilities much like a traditional hotel, but with added space, amenities and privacy. The opportunity to conceive this offer within a building of such architectural character will add a truly unique experience to city’s hospitality offer.”

The renovation is a part of the city’s Castle Street Conservation Area, set up to preserve the architectural history of the district. The aparthotel will join a series of restaurant venues which have been renovated nearby.

Liverpool has been a popular site for the serviced apartments industry, with new construction NoMad taking over an old recording studio.
