The £17.8m project for Union Property Developments will transform the site of a disused commercial building that has been largely vacant since 2011.

The seven-storey structure, designed by architects FaulknerBrowns, accommodates 161-bedrooms and facilities including a restaurant/bar, fitness centre and meeting spaces, and an ‘open living lounge’ with bar and restaurant for non-residents. An on-site carpark and landscaping complete the project.

The hotel will be operated under Melia Hotels’ INNSIDE hospitality brand and employ 80 people.

Robertson has an extensive portfolio of hospitality projects in the UK with both major brands and independent hotels, including Premier Inn, Travelodge, Moxy and Hilton.
