Luxury £70m hotel planned for Baltic Triangle

A luxury 306-room hotel complete with a rooftop pool could be built in the Baltic Triangle under new plans.

The ambitious development from local restaurant and hotel brand Vincent could also include 50 ‘over-sized’ serviced apartments, basement event space and an outdoor circuit training terrace.

The proposed Norfolk Street scheme, which is split into 15-storey and 14-storey blocks, could also feature a rooftop restaurant, a spa and a gym.

Developer Elliot Group has applied for a change of use to an existing planning application for 253 apartments following discussions with local hotelier Paul Adams, the man behind the Vincent brand.

If approved, The Vincent Residence & Hotel will be the fourth property in Paul Adams’ Liverpool portfolio to go alongside the Vincent café and cocktail bar, the Times Hotel on Seel Street and the forthcoming Vincent Asian Kitchen on Bold Street.

Speaking about the plans, Paul says: “The development has a great waterfront location with superb views and guests will feel they have chosen to stay in a very special place.

“We will naturally aim to ensure the product and service offering is in keeping with the neighbourhood story as well as satisfying the exacting demands of today’s busy leisure and business traveller.”

Elliot Lawless of the Elliot Group adds: “We’re working with Paul on his new Times Hotel in Liverpool and the opportunity emerged from those discussions.

“Baltic is thriving, but there’s always a lag between growth in the working and residential populations and infrastructure such as hotels and restaurants.  This development adds to the quirky and stylish mix in this part of Liverpool and is the perfect location for the format.”

If planning permission is granted, construction work is expected start on site this summer.
