Work to create a new hotel in Liverpool ONE complete with a rooftop bar is set to begin this spring.
Hope Street Hotel Ltd will operate School Lane Hotel, located in the Russell Building on the corner of School Lane and Peter’s Lane.
A joint venture with YPG Developments Ltd, the hotel will include 50 bedrooms, a restaurant, rooftop bar, gym, conference room and coffee lounge.
YM Liverpool first reported on plans for the new hotel in April last year – a document included with a planning application for the project confirmed ground floor tenant Hotel Chocolat would remain as part of the venture.
Work is scheduled for completion in early 2020.
Dave Brewitt, founder and CEO of Hope Street Hotel Ltd, which includes Hope Street Hotel and The London Carriage Works, says: “These are exciting plans that will deliver a high-quality hotel in one of the most popular cities for tourism in the UK.
“In the last 10 years, Liverpool’s visitor economy has expanded by 66% and Liverpool ONE is at the heart of that growth.
“Its reputation for the quality of its offer and the experience it provides for visitors create the perfect setting for School Lane Hotel, a landmark sister destination to Hope Street Hotel.”
Alison Clegg, director of asset management at Grosvenor Europe, adds: “We are delighted that Hope Street Hotel has been confirmed as the operator, given their reputation for delivering exemplary service and providing such a high-quality experience for guests.
“School Lane Hotel is another exciting addition to Liverpool ONE’s unique offer.”
