The 212-apartment property will offer studios, one and two-bed apartments all with a kitchen fitted with microwave, fridge, dishwasher and hob as well high-speed broadband, 40” flat screen TV, rainfall shower and a smartphone for guests to make free local calls.
The Corn Exchange building lies in the heart of the city’s commercial area close to James Street Merseyrail Station and the retail and leisure development Liverpool One. Kearon McCarthy is to be general manager of the new property, as well as managing Staycity’s existing Liverpool site, which opened with 56 apartments on Duke Street in 2009.
Staycity Group CEO Tom Walsh, said: “I’m particularly pleased to be opening in such a vibrant, busy area of this exciting city, which will be perfect for both our leisure and business visitors. Corn Exchange very much fits with our strategy of being in central locations in key UK and European cities.”
The Staycity Group, set up in 2004 by Walsh and his brother Ger, operates in 10 European cities with over 4,500 apartments across the Staycity Aparthotels and Wilde Aparthotels by Staycity brands.
