Palmyra Square Post Office
Ground floor commercial units will be retained under the plans

Priestley to build Warrington aparthotel 

The Leeds-based developer has won approval for a 21-bedroom aparthotel within a former post office at Palmyra Square in the town centre. 

The project, for which Priestley Group submitted plans last April, will see the upper floors of the building in Warrington converted into 21 bedrooms, while the commercial space on the ground floor will be retained. 

PDG Architectural designed the project and the value of Priestley’s construction contract is £1.8m.

Earlier this year, Priestley won approval for a £3.5m residential development on Warrington’s Museum Street. That scheme involves the creation of 27 apartments across a mixture of converted and new-build buildings. 

Priestley’s construction business will act as the main contractor on both projects, which are being brought forward in partnership with property operator Immedi-Let. 

The one- and two-bedroom apartments will be targeted at owner-occupiers. 

In another aparthotel scheme in Warrington, hotel developer YP Group wants to covert the 9,500 sq ft former Parr’s Bank on Winwick Street into a 16-bedroom hotel.

Positive news for Warrington and Cheshire west.

Palmyra Square has real potential – an apart-hotel is perfect here. Preston has successfully added boutique and apart hotels in and around Winckley Square.


How would this great news for cheshire west and specifically The Greater Northwich District

I agree. Palmyra sq is a v attractive area. Just get rid of the solicitors offices etc and make it a true ‘cafe culture’ environment. Great potential for the town centre which suffers from a somewhat threatening reputation.
