Plans have been unveiled for the conversion of two floors above a popular pub in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter into a 31-bedroom boutique hotel.
Suburban Inns in the city has submitted a proposal to transform the two floors above The Rope Walk pub in St Paul’s Square, which is currently being used as office space.
A new 31-bedroom hotel could be opening in the city’s Jewellery Quarter which would create 40 full- and part-time jobs.
A design statement prepared by Leamington Spa-based AT Architects said: "The proposal will bring jobs and further revenue as well as additional visitors into the area which will add to the local services.
"It will make use of the existing building to its full potential while still retaining the external elevations. It is felt the proposal is appropriate in terms of scale and design and remains consistent with the character of the square."
The development could create 40 full- and part-time jobs in the city.
Suburban Inns was founded by husband and wife team Adrian and Sharon Harvey and the renovation of the former Village Inn in Moseley in 2013 marked their first project together.
The couple also owns the Royal Hotel in High Street, Sutton Coldfield.
