St Johns House

PLANNING | Promenade proposes historic Liverpool hotel

A grade two-listed building designed by Sir Alfred Waterhouse is set to be converted into a hotel, after being recommended for approval at Liverpool’s next planning committee, alongside 30,000 sq ft of employment space at Estuary Boulevard.

Scheme: Convert grade two-listed building in Liverpool city centre into a hotel

Developer: Promenade Estates

Architect: Falconer Chester Hall

Bedrooms: 43

Formerly the Pearl Assurance Building, St Johns House was designed by Sir Alfred Waterhouse in the 1870s. The interior has been altered throughout the years when it was used as an office, so the conversion into a hotel will have little adverse impact on the inside of the building, while proposed changes to the exterior have been kept to a minimum.

The site is south of Estuary Boulevard and Garston Shore Road, within the Liverpool International Business Park. The plot is currently scrubland, with light industrial use proposed, with the 10 units split across three buildings.
