UK: Phoenix House in Broad Street, Worcester, has been converted into a 17-key aparthotel across four floors.

Nick Carroll Architects has also moved its office into the empty ground floor space. Permission was granted for the plan by Deansway Regeneration, of which Nick Carroll is a director, by Worcester City Council in April.

Carroll said: “Broad Street stands to benefit in having a former run-down building repurposed for modern life by Livity – an aparthotel and rental operator who started work on the building during the first lockdown. Livity have had a great market response to the apartments which are unique to the city - providing a more Covid-19 resilient environment for young professionals who would prefer self-contained accommodation as opposed to a house share."

“When lockdown finishes they also anticipate a strong aparthotel market for visitors and business users to the city. Livity are anticipating that this development will kick start regeneration in the area. Broad Street might have had its fair share of anti-social behaviour in the past but an increase in activity, both day and night, promotes fresh life in the area."
