The £17.8m project for Union Property Developments will transform the site of a disused commercial building that has laid largely vacant since 2011, with enabling works having begun on Newcastle’s quayside in August 2018.

The building, designed by architects FaulknerBrowns, will be a seven-storey, 161-bedroom hotel with restaurant/bar, fitness centre, meeting spaces, parking and landscaping. An ‘open living lounge’ with a bar and restaurant will be open to non-residents.

The four-star continental hotel will be operated under Melia Hotels’ INNSIDE hospitality brand and will be employing 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.
