Fast Growth presses on with Ten Streets hotel  

The developer is seeking consent for the demolition of the former IBS warehouses on Waterloo Road in Liverpool to bring forward a 190-bedroom hotel. 

Fast Growth Homes lodged plans for a nine-storey hotel, featuring 2,400 sq ft of offices, last year but Liverpool City Council has not yet determined the application. 

The developer wants to start demolition work early next year, subject to council approval, but a contractor has yet to be appointed. 

The majority of the warehouses have been vacant for more than 15 years, according to the applicant. 

The 12,000 sq ft site is bounded by Porter Street and Regent Street in the Ten Streets area of Liverpool, 125 acres of former dockland north of the city centre that have been earmarked for redevelopment by the council.

NS Architects designed the scheme and The Planning Studio advised on the application.

I think this is the mid 20th century warehouse between Porter Street and Regent Street, I’m not against this demolition and the hotel will be a great addition to Ten Streets. There are some really wonderful old warehouses on Porter Street that add to the character of the area and should be preserved at all costs. These are ripe for conversion to digital and creative centres like the one on Simpson Street in the Baltic Triangle. Is Baltic Creative getting involved in Ten Streets?

By Red Squirrel

The warehouses were occupied up until last year with the previous owners trading from the site and buildings…..

What happened to the idea of a high speed rotating theatre that would make Ten Streets into one of the most cultural districts, globally?

By Centrifuge

Ten Streets is adjacent to the Liverpool Waterfront which is already one of the ‘most cultural districts globally’.

Can anyone enlighten us about Fast Growth Homes, as from what I can see they have had planning permission for other developments and there has been no action eg a block of flats proposed on Kirkdale Rd in 2018
I would like to see this hotel scheme come to fruition but would like to be convinced they can get this one over the line.

There are several hotels in the offing on Regent Road now due to the proximity of the Cruise Liner terminal, the Isle of Mann ferry terminal, and Everton’s new stadium. The old north docks or North Shore is a natural extension of the city centre and the Waterfront. The Titanic hotel has very good occupancy rates so the demand is certainly there.
