Legacie Developments has revealed plans for its first hotel in Liverpool, a 250-bedroom scheme on the site of a car park on Duke Street.
A planning application for the proposal, which is being designed by Falconer Chester Hall, is set to be submitted in the coming weeks, with hopes for approval in time to allow a start on site in late summer 2019.
Legacie has delivered a number of residential schemes across the city, including Ropemaker Place on Renshaw Street, Reliance House on Water Street and the forthcoming Parliament Square development in the Baltic Triangle.
Legacie Developments founder, John Morley, said: “We are very excited to be bringing forward proposals which will help finish the remaining chapter of Duke Street’s regeneration story. Our hotel development will add to the burgeoning offer of restaurants, bars and independent chains which already exist.
“The car park has been a real blight in the area for far too long, and a hotel will not only alleviate the lack of top quality hotel rooms available but will help drive additional footfall and boost the local economy.
“I believe our proposals will help inject some excitement into what has proved to be an incredibly popular part of the city centre in recent years.”
