Liverpool approves Paddington village’s £40m ‘New York style’ next phasePublished on
The next step in a massive plan to transform part of Liverpool City Centre has been given the go-ahead.
The proposals for a 17-storey hotel and 1,245-space multi-storey car park were unanimously approved at Liverpool City Council’s planning committee yesterday.
The 130,000 sq ft hotel is designed by Ryder Architecture, and will hold 221 bedrooms. It is set to be operated by Legacy Hotels & Resorts under the Accor Novotel Brand. It will face the Royal Liverpool Hospital and Liverpool University campus, and will feature meeting and co-working spaces, a gym public realm, restaurant, bar, and roof terrace.
The project value is £40m and Morgan Sindall will act as main contractor. It is also set to build the multi-storey car park, which will reach 12-storeys. This is a revised design from a previous application and has added four storeys and 200 spaces.
City mayor Joe Anderson has previously called progress on the project ‘phenomenal’. Speaking earlier this year, Mayor Anderson said:
“It is absolutely amazing – I am hugely impressed by the work that’s going on at the site.”
The plans for No.5 Paddington Village were revealed earlier this year in Cannes at MIPIM. It is set to feature 120,000 sq ft targeted at the creative and scientific industries.
According to the phasing plan for Paddington Village, the commercial office will be delivered after Plot 9’s build-to-rent scheme. The council said bringing forward the hotel and residential would “keep development momentum and allow time to bring the next commercial office scheme [No.5 Paddington Village] to the market.”
Morgan Sindall are also currently on site delivering the £35m northern headquarters for the Royal College of Physicians, which is set to complete in 2020. The site is also set to house a cancer centre for Rutherford Diagnostics which is being delivered by Interserve.
