Plans submitted for Chester lifestyle hotel

UK: Cervidae and AXIS-RE have submitted plans for a 162-bedroom lifestyle hotel at 1-13 Frodsham Street in Chester city centre.

The proposals, designed by architecture practice Donal Insall Associates, include 7,500 square feet of ground floor retail and a top-floor restaurant. 

If approved, the hotel will replace outdated shops and create over 130 jobs.

Tony Barton, chairman at Donald Insall Associates, said: “Historic locations such as central Chester demand architecture that complements the existing buildings while reflecting changing needs and incorporating the best of modern design. This approach underpins the plans for the hotel, and if approved it will rejuvenate a corner of Chester that holds great potential beyond its current use.”

Nick Mullins, director at AXIS-RE, said: “Chester is perennially popular with visitors, but the number of hotel beds has often fallen short of what is required to meet demand, particularly for those seeking a boutique, lifestyle experience. 

“The proposed project would be a real asset to Chester, and as the way people use the city shifts away from retail and towards leisure time, the hotel and its rooftop restaurant would play a vital role in helping residents and visitors alike make the most of their time here,” he added.

Development manager AXIS-RE is based in Manchester with real estate, commercial and residential projects across the north west of England.

Cervidae, a family-led business based in London, is an international real estate investment and development company. The group has assets in London, New York, Birmingham and Dublin across the commercial, residential and alternative sectors.
