Liverpool aparthotel plans reconfigured

UK: Plans for a 63-unit aparthotel in Liverpool have been reconfigured to include 126 hotel rooms and just 14 aparthotel suites.

The plans for the 11-storey hotel, next to HM Revenue & Customs' proposed new home in Liverpool's commercial district, look set to be given the green light after being given a recommendation of approval.

In September 2017, Fold Architecture submitted proposals for a 63-suite aparthotel on the corner of Drury Lane and Brunswick Street, which currently contains a private car park.

However, the application to be considered by Liverpool City Council on 20 February has been heavily altered, and is now for an eight to 11-storey building made up of 14 apart-hotel suites and 126 hotel rooms. It also includes a ground floor commercial unit, lounge/restaurant, management office, refuse store, cycle store and plant room.

The site lies behind the Three Graces within Liverpool's World Heritage Site.

A report to councillors said: "The development will meet a specific and identified demand for visitor accommodation and enhance the city centre leisure offer, contributing positively to vitality, viability and vibrancy of this locality and the city centre."
