Plans have been submitted for the development of a new \u00a370m hotel overlooking Liverpool\u2019s Queen\u2019s Dock.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nDeveloper Elliott Group has applied for a change of use to an existing planning approval to create the Vincent Residence & Hotel, a 306-bedroom hotel.\r\n\r\nThe site, on Norfolk Street, currently has planning permission for 253 apartments but the decision to change uses follows discussions with local hotelier Paul Adams, who created the Vincent brand. \r\n\r\nIf plans are approved the property will offer 50 \u201cover-sized\u201d serviced apartments, a 10,000 sq ft basement event space and a range of rooftop services, including a restaurant, lounge, spa, gym and outdoor circuit training terrace. \r\n\r\nDeveloper Elliot Lawless said: \u201cWe\u2019re working with Paul on his new Times Hotel by Vincent in Liverpool and the opportunity emerged from those discussions. We\u2019ve just started construction of that, so this announcement is very timely.\u201d\r\n\r\nThe Vincent Residence & Hotel will be the fourth property in Paul Adams\u2019 Liverpool portfolio to go alongside his popular Vincent caf\u00e9 and cocktail bar, the Times Hotel on Seel Street and the forthcoming launch of Vincent Asian Kitchen. He also operates the Vincent boutique hotel in Southport.\r\n\r\nAdams said: \u201cThe Baltic area is creative, vibrant and bohemian and is such an intriguing and colourful part of Liverpool. The development has a great waterfront location with superb views and guests will feel they have chosen to stay in a very special place.\u201d\r\n\r\nIf planning permission is granted, construction work on the \u00a370m project is expected to start later this year.
