We are delivering the development for our clients, Danny Inman Property and Priestley Homes.

Situated on Palmyra Square, we are converting the upper floors of the Grade-II listed building into 21 high-specification apartments for short-term rent.

Moreover, during the extensive renovation project, many of the building’s original features will be meticulously refurbishing and retained.

Existing flooring will be built up to achieve the best acoustic separation from the restaurant and bar on the ground floor, which will continue to operate.

In addition to, the installation of high-tech entry systems will allow hotel guests to enter the aparthotel using just their smartphones.

Meanwhile Priestley Construction is inviting local subcontractors to bid for work on the development as it progresses, to support businesses in the area.

Nathan Priestley, chief executive of Priestley Construction, said: “Warrington is undergoing significant regeneration, driven by an ambitious, forward-thinking council.

“Design on this brand-new aparthotel meets the highest specification, while retaining a part of the local heritage. We are creating some of the most desirable hotel rooms the town has to offer.”
