Hotel developer, Signature Living has announced that it has acquired the former home of NHS Liverpool’s Clinical Commissioning Group, One Arthouse Square.
The company intends to transform the building into a high-spec apart-hotel to add to its growing property portfolio. Taking the number of Liverpool accommodation beds to over 1500, this will further boost the local economy and ongoing regeneration of the RopeWalks area.
Signature Living’s multi-million pound redevelopment of the multi-story 27,575 sq ft site, situated within Liverpool’s RopeWalks area, will include a ‘unique’ dining offer and exciting social space that will complement the mixed use and independent status of the area.
The company is also exploring a collaboration with the neighbouring Foundation for Art and Creative Technology (FACT) on the development and is consulting on the possibility of an art and film theme for the new venue.
Signature Living founder, Lawrence Kenwright, said:
“This is an amazing opportunity to create a standout development which shows that Liverpool is at the forefront of hotel accommodation. As with all of our hotels, our aim is to design a hotel and social space that stretches boundaries and competes with the world’s best through innovative design and outstanding guest experience.We’ll soon be announcing releasing further details for this project that guaranteed to create a buzz in Liverpool and beyond.”
Signature Living’s Katie Kenwright added:
“This is yet another important investment from Signature Living in Liverpool and will further cement our position as one of the country’s most exciting and fastest growing hotel and development companies.”
Signature Living operates a number of hotels and apartments in Liverpool and has plans to expand into other major cities throughout the UK and Europe.
The independent online hotel watchdog, TripAdvsior, ranks Signature Living’s hotels as No 1 and 2 in the city. The award-winning 30 James Street Hotel, Shankly Hotel and Signature Living’s Hotel all feature in TripAdvisor’s top six for Liverpool.
