Approval lined up for pharmaceutical factory transformation

Revised plans to transform a former pharmaceutical factory in Liverpool into a 278-bedroom hotel look set to be backed.

The Gostins Building at 32-34 Hanover Street stands eight storeys high and neighbours the Novotel.

Last year, an application as approved to change the use of the ground to sixth floors to accommodate a 154-bedroom venue with a restaurant/bar, with the seventh floor set to host 11 apartments.

A four-storey roof extension was also proposed to accommodate a further 36 flats.

Now, a fresh version of the plans have come forward and are instead looking to operate the entirety of the site – including the four-storey extension – as a hotel. This would comprise 278 rooms.

“It is considered that the proposed mixed hotel use of the site is acceptable in this location and will facilitate the reuse of this attractive, vacant building,” said a report to Liverpool City Council’s planning committee, which is scheduled to meet on 19 November.

“The development will add to the diversity of accommodation offer within the city and contribute towards a sustainable mix of uses in an accessible location.”

Approval has been recommended.
