Crossfield Exclusive Developments has gained planning permission to develop a four-star hotel on Norfolk Street in Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle district.
The £20 million development will occupy the now-derelict site of what was formerly the Liver Grease Oil and Chemicals building.
The 202-bedroom hotel will feature a gym and parking, as well as a top-floor restaurant and bar that will command views across the city and river.
Around 150 staff spanning 50 different trades will be employed on the site during the build, both from Crossfield Construction and local suppliers.
The hotel plot is adjacent to Baltic View, a scheme by Crossfield Exclusive Developments that is currently underway to create 129 residential apartments and nine office units.
Together, the two projects mark a total investment of £32 million by the company in the area of the Baltic Triangle between Norfolk Street and Brick Street that has until recently been left disused.
Crossfield Exclusive Developments is a joint venture between Crossfield Group and Exclusive Investments; its directors and senior management are all Liverpool-born and educated. Crossfield Construction, which is a division of Crossfield Group, has been appointed to carry out the works on the project.
David Cain, managing director of Crossfield Exclusive Developments and Crossfield Group said: “As the appeal of the Baltic Triangle grows the demand for hotel rooms in the area is on the up. This development will offer high quality, four-star hotel rooms that will attract both tourists and business travellers, adding to the economy of the Baltic area and the City in general.”
David Ayem, director at Crossfield Exclusive Developments said: “We are proud to be able regenerate and revitalise abandoned sites within the City and, through both the Baltic View development and now our hotel venture, we are making a major investment in turning around these derelict parts of the Baltic Triangle.”
The scheme has been designed by international award winning architects Brock Carmichael, which supported Crossfield Exclusive Developments in securing planning consent.
Phil Malthouse, Associate at Brock Carmichael said: “The design of the new hotel development will really complement the vibrant Baltic Triangle district. Historically the buildings in this area are of an industrial and warehouse nature from which our design proposal has taken a lead. The brick and metal design provides a visual link to the location’s heritage whilst providing the style and function of a four-star hotel.”
