Kier Property and CTP have submitted a detailed application for a 280-bedroom, 13-storey hotel on Pall Mall in Liverpool as part of their £200m regeneration of the area.
The hotel will also feature a pedestrian footbridge which will connect Pall Mall with The Gardens at the rear of the Mercury Court building.
The 150,000 sq ft hotel, which will be operated by Leonardo, will occupy part of the three-acre council-owned site. Contractor Willmott Dixon has completed remedial work on the site.
Consent for the masterplan was granted in November with the scheme due to include 400,000 sq ft of offices as well as leisure, retail and a public square.
The application also sought permission for the demolition of an existing building next to Pall Mall.
There is scope for additional development on a neighbouring 7.5-acre site, currently used for car parking, which would form phase two of the scheme and include a car park and residential.
The project team includes Allies & Morrison as architect, Re-form landscape architecture, WSP Indigo as planning consultant, Curtins as structural and civil engineer, Ernest Griffiths Services as engineer and Sweco as transport engineer.
