Planning boost for Liverpool aparthotel

George Sell George Sell Uploaded 03 August 2018


UK: Plans for a nine-storey office and aparthotel development in Liverpool have been recommended for approval.

The plot at 50-60 Waterloo Road, bounded by Oil Street and Vandries Street, on the fringe of Liverpool's UNESCO World Heritage Site, lies opposite the grade II-listed gates to Victoria and Trafalgar Docks. The Titanic Hotel and the Invisible Wind Factory are also nearby.

The application by MBE Construction proposes the development of a nine-storey building featuring almost 5,000 square feet of office space and six storeys of aparthotel accommodation.

The 56 units would comprise 21 studios, 16 one-bedroom, 14 two-bedroom and five three-bedroom duplex apartments.

All units, excluding one studio on the first floor, would have balconies or terraces, as well as kitchen facilities. The scheme also includes a guest car park with 20 spaces.

The application has been recommended for approval ahead of a Liverpool City Council planning meeting on August 7 2018.

Final approval rests on the completion of a section 106 agreement to secure £15,000 towards an area wide masterplan to review parking and servicing infrastructure in the surrounding streets.
