Plans for a new 284-bedroom hotel have been given the greenlight in Liverpool city centre.
Developers Kier Property and CTP being granted consent for the 13-storey building, which includes a 102,000 sq ft office building and new public realm, which is believed to be operated by Leonardo Hotels.
The developing companies achieved the hybrid planning consent, which granted detailed planning consent for the first office building, public realm as well as outline consent for the hotel and two further office buildings in November 2019.

Leigh Thomas, managing director for Kier Property, said: “We are delighted to announce this news, it is another great milestone for the Pall Mall development situated in the heart of Liverpool’s commercial district and it comes at a crucial time in the sites’ regeneration.”
David Topham, chief executive of CTP, added: “We look forward now to commencing the construction stage following the recent completion of the remediation works, which completed earlier this year.”
Kier and CTP were formally selected as Liverpool City Council’s development partner and have been working on detailed proposals for the new build since 2017.
Liverpool Mayor Joe Anderson said: “This announcement, coming just days after the Sciontec deal, is another welcome vote of confidence in Liverpool’s appeal and points the way ahead for how our economy will grow once the Covid-19 pandemic is behind us.”
