A well-known business owner has lodged plans to create a new £70m luxury hotel in Liverpool, complete with a rooftop restaurant and 50 serviced apartments.
Local hotelier Paul Adams, who is behind the Vincent brand in the city and is a business partner of Steven Gerrard, has joined forces with developers Elliot Group to submit an application for a luxury 306-bed hotel for the site on Norfolk Street.
If given the go ahead, the property would become a mixed-use hotel block, with 50 serviced apartments, rooftop restaurant, plus an events space and outdoor training terrace.
It would mark the second city centre hotel for the Vincent brand, after construction began on the Ropewalks-based Times Aparthotel earlier this year.
In total, The Vincent Residence & Hotel would be the fourth property in Paul Adams’ Liverpool portfolio, alongside the Vincent café and cocktail bar, The Times Hotel on Seel Street and the newest upcoming launch the Vincent Asian Kitchen.
Adams also operates the Vincent boutique hotel in Southport.
Speaking to the Liverpool Echo, Adams said: “The Baltic area is creative, vibrant and bohemian and is such an intriguing and colourful part of Liverpool.
“The development has a great waterfront location with superb views and guests will feel they have chosen to stay in a very special place.
“We will naturally aim to ensure the product and service offering is in keeping with the neighbourhood story as well as satisfying the exacting demands of today’s busy leisure and business traveller.”
Adams also shared his plans for the rooftop dining space, adding: “The development offers the perfect home for our second Pacific Restaurant. Having opened the first one in Southport recently, we are confident it will be a great fit for the scheme.
