Plans have been submitted for a £70m luxury hotel in Liverpool.
Developer Elliot Group has applied for a change of use to an existing planning approval for apartments, to instead build a 306-bedroom hotel overlooking Queen's Dock in the city's Baltic technology hub.
It is working with local hotelier Paul Adams, who is behind the Vincent group of restaurants and hotels in the North West, to create the Vincent residence and hotel.
If the revised plans are approved the hotel will include 50 serviced apartments, a 10,000 sq ft event space and a restaurant, lounge, spa, gym and outdoor circuit training terrace on the roof.
Developer Elliot Lawless said: "We're working with Paul on his new Times Hotel by Vincent in Liverpool and the opportunity emerged from those discussions. We've just started construction of that, so this announcement is very timely.
"Baltic is thriving, but there's always a lag between growth in the working and residential populations and infrastructure such as hotels and restaurants. This development adds to the quirky and stylish mix in this part of Liverpool and is the perfect location for the format."
The new hotel will be the fourth property run by Paul Adams in the area, to join the Vincent café and cocktail bar, the Vincent hotel in Southport, the Times hotel on Liverpool's Seel Street and the forthcoming launch of Vincent Asian Kitchen.
Adams said: "The 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. We will naturally aim to ensure the product and service offering is in keeping with the neighbourhood story as well as satisfying the exacting demands of today's busy leisure and business traveller."
He added that the rooftop restaurant would be the second site for the group's Pacific concept, which offers the spices and flavours of Asia and the Pacific Rim. At the Southport site typical dishes include seared beef fillet, sweet soy and caramel, and crispy soft shell crab Singapore style.
If planning permission is granted construction work for the £70m project will begin in the summer.
