An upscale 4-star hotel operated under the Innside by Meliá brand will join a new mixed-use development at the Echo Building in Liverpool, United Kingdom. The building was recently purchased by Dubai-based Select Group. Savills, jointly with development managers Paradigm Property Consultants, sold the forward funding redevelopment on behalf of Reach PLC. Corstorphine + Wright Architects are designing the property.
The hotel will be spread over 17 floors and comprise 207 rooms, a modern open plan restaurant with a show kitchen, bar and lounge, six conference rooms, and a double height rooftop skybar with an outdoor terrace.
The development will be located in the heart of Liverpool’s commercial district and will span 300,000 sq. ft. In addition to the hotel, the building will include 50,000 sq. ft. of commercial space, 15,000 sq. ft. of gym space, four retail units on the ground floor and basement parking. The project is scheduled to be completed in January 2020.
