Plans have been published to convert a vacant office block in the centre of Birmingham into an aparthotel and a boutique hostel.

St James' House is an eight-storey building in Horse Fair. The O2 Academy sits on the ground floor but the office space above has been vacant since 2003.

Plans would see an additional four storeys added to the building. Levels three to six would be the hostel, with the aparthotel located on levels seven through to 11. The plans would create 94 aparthotel rooms and 64 hostel rooms.

St James’s House is a short walk from Birmingham New Street Station.

Plans await the go-ahead from Birmingham City Council.
