Legacie Developments has announced plans to build a £30m four-star hotel in Liverpool.
The developer said it would transform an existing car park on Duke Street into a 250-bedroom hotel, with work starting in late summer 2019.
It will be Legacie's first hotel development.
Legacie Developments founder, John Morley, said: "We are very excited to be bringing forward proposals which will help finish the remaining chapter of Duke Street's regeneration story. Our hotel development will add to the burgeoning offer of restaurants, bars and independent chains which already exist.
"The car park has been a real blight in the area for far too long, and a hotel will not only alleviate the lack of top quality hotel rooms available but will help drive additional footfall and boost the local economy.
"I believe our proposals will help inject some excitement into what has proved to be an incredibly popular part of the city centre in recent years."Get The Caterer every week on your smartphone, tablet, or even in good old-fashioned hard copy (or all three!).
