A building which has been derelict for 30 years in Liverpool city centre is set to be turned into a luxury apart-hotel housing 17 ‘chic and contemporary apartments’.
Epic Apart-Hotel and Serviced Apartments is investing £800,000 in transforming 75 Duke Street in the Ropewalks area of city. The firm, owned and operated by Simon and Fiona Beer, already has properties located in Campbell Street and Seel Street. The Duke Street apart-hotel will provide 15 new jobs.
An Apart hotel is a cross between a conventional hotel serviced apartments and a number have been opened across the city centre in recent years.
Mr Beer said “We are very excited to bring back to life this stunning building on Duke Street. The new apartments have been engineered in a way that a two-bedroom can become a one-bedroom if needed. This flexibility is ideal for the midweek commercial market, and further demonstrates the brand’s continued evolution.”
The will feature a selection of ePods, which are smaller rooms at 15 sq metres, aimed at the budget corporate traveller and weekend couples.
Each apartment will be individually designed with individual décor and furniture, claiming to offer more space and home comforts that can be usually found in a city centre hotel. Two mezzanine studios will also be created, one featuring a showcase courtyard garden.
Epic has been in operation since 2012 and invests in the development of void spaces. The company has 35 apartments, with a 200 bed occupancy and is actively looking to develop further sites in Merseyside and across the UK.
