UK:Plans to build a 63-key apart-hotel opposite Liverpool’s India Buildings have been revealed.

Proposals for the multi-height building also include space for a new shop or restaurant on the ground floor.

The proposed site of the development is a car park at the junction of Drury Lane and Brunswick Street, which backs on to the Drury House office building. The aparthotel scheme, a single block rising from eight to 11 storeys, has been proposed by Liverpool firm Fold Architecture and is a mix of one- and two-bedroom apartments.

A document included with the planning application submitted to Liverpool City Council said: "In recent years, Liverpool has become a hotspot for serviced suites and short stay residential accommodation. It's clear that there remains a healthy demand for the right hotel product in the city and the applicant's proposal for 'hotel-living' and flexible short stay lets is offering yet another niche brand of hotels within the city."

"The site is a well-placed to support a viable and long term sustainable apart-hotel product that fits all the qualities that the applicant company looks for to further its expansion plans in the city. It will ensure a new long term user for the site, with the apart-hotel use underpinning the delivery of the mixed-use development including new ground floor commercial uses," it continued.
