Liverpool's Cruise Terminal Hotel Takes Major Step Forward

Construction News Image
Plans for a new Cruise Terminal Hotel in Liverpool have taken a major step forward.

Contractor Wates has submitted a planning application for the development, which will comprise a 200-bedroom accommodation complex, including a lobby bar, cafe, restaurant, business suite and back of house facilities as well as visitor and coach parking, and a taxi pick-up and drop-off point.

The development would also form part of Peel Land and Property's Liverpool Waters, a major waterfront regeneration scheme in the city.

The new hotel is intended to support and supplement the city's new cruise liner terminal at Liverpool Waters' Princes Dock, which will accommodate the world's largest cruise ships and create new jobs and generate wider economic benefits for the city region.

An application was submitted for the hotel following a lengthy consultation last year.

John Foster, Pre-Construction Director, Wates Construction, said: "The new Liverpool Cruise Terminal Hotel forms a core part of the transformation of Liverpool's waterfront, which will represent a significant step-change in the city's tourism industry as well as positively impacting its economy.

"Submission of planning is an exciting step for the team and brings to fruition months of hard work to consult with local people and develop plans for a luxury hotel befitting a world-class tourist destination."

Construction of the new hotel was procured via Major Works UK, part of Scape's National Construction framework, which has been designed to deliver significant levels of local economic engagement as well as extensive community initiatives.

Wates' design team includes Brock Carmichael as Architects, Curtains as Civil and Structural Engineers, Ramboll as Mechanical and Electrical Engineers and Planit as Landscape Architects.
