UK: Renovation work has begun on the former post office in Warrington to transform it into an aparthotel.

The building, located in Palmyra Square in the town centre, is said to be valued at £3.2 million ($4.5 million) as an aparthotel, which is set to be complete in Q2 of 2022.

Priestly Construction is the main contractor on the job, working for its clients Danny Inman Property and Priestly Homes. In an effort to support local businesses, Priestly Construction is allowing other subcontractors to bid on participation in the renovation of the post office as well.

The plans for the aparthotel were approved in September of last year. The ground floor will remain restaurant and commercial space, while the upper floors will be converted to 21 apartments that are available for short-term rent.

Priestly Construction is focusing on retaining elements of the old post office building, while also incorporating new technology into the project. The renovation will refurbish many exterior features of the building, while also working with existing flooring to prevent sound travelling to the apartments from the restaurant below. New technologies include guest access to the building through their smartphones.

Priestly Construction’s chief executive Nathan Priestley, said: “Design on this brand new aparthotel meets the highest specification, while retaining a part of the local heritage. We are creating some of the most desirable hotel rooms this town has to offer.”
