Dublin-based Staycity is set to open its latest aparthotel in Liverpool’s Corn Exchange building on October 19, marking the brand’s second venture in the city.
The new property will be home to 212 apartments, in the form of studios, one- and two-bed apartments, with fitted kitchens and lounge space, situated close to James Street Merseyrail Station and the retail and leisure development Liverpool One.
Facilities at Staycity Liverpool, Corn Exchange include a cafe, a fitness room, lounge for working, a laundry room, 24-hour reception desk and guest parking.
Kearon McCarthy is to be general manager of the new property, as well as managing Staycity’s existing Liverpool site, which opened with 56 apartments on Duke Street in 2009.
Staycity Group CEO Tom Walsh said: “I’m particularly pleased to be opening in such a vibrant, busy area of this exciting city, which will be perfect for both our leisure and business visitors. Corn Exchange very much fits with our strategy of being in central locations in key UK and European cities.”
The Staycity Group, set up in 2004 by Tom Walsh and his brother Ger, now operates in 10 European cities with over 4,500 apartments [operational and pipeline] across the Staycity Aparthotels and Wilde Aparthotels by Staycity brands.
The first of the company’s premium Wilde Aparthotels by Staycity brand was opened earlier this year on London’s Strand, with further Wilde properties to follow in Edinburgh, Manchester and Berlin.
