Real estate investment company, Cain International, has signed an agreement with luxury hotel operator, the Oberoi Group, to operate 23 serviced residences in Mayfair, west London.

Oberoi currently operate 32 hotels around the world. The serviced residences in Mayfair will be the hotel group’s first European venture.

The site is a 48,000 sq-ft Grade II-listed property in South Audley Street dating from 1845. The residences will also feature retail space and a small restaurant. They are due for completion in 2022.

A new aparthotel is set to be built above the O2 Academy in Birmingham, one of city's most popular concert venues.

New plans have been published which would add four storeys to the eight-storey St James House, located just off Bristol Street and within easy walking distance of the city centre and Birmingham New Street Station.

The O2 Academy occupies the ground floor space. The existing office accommodation above the venue has now been vacant for over ten years.

Plans include the installation of a noise barrier between the O2 Academy and bedrooms above. The new aparthotel would include 94 suites. There would be a communal lounge, gym, kitchen, coffee servery, work area and cycle storage.

The project’s progress is subject to planning consent.

Plans have been unveiled to build a new aparthotel in the centre of Sheffield.

The site is in Garden Street and the new aparthotel will be an offshoot of a planned student accommodation scheme to be built on the same site.

The project, named ‘The Workshops’, is based on the Airbnb concept for short-term city lets. Guests will be able to book online and receive an access code to their apartment.

The units will be completely self-contained and can be accessed by guests without any human interaction – with the lack of staffing costs reflected in the price of the rooms.

The tendering process for a construction contractor is expected to start next month.

Garden Street lies in the ‘cutlery quarter’ of central Sheffield and still features a few cutlery workshops which date from the eighteenth century.

Aparthotel Adagio Liverpool City Centre is planning to expand. The Adagio Aparthotel is located in the Grade II-listed Lewis’s Building in central Liverpool. Its 126 apartments are located on the first, third, fourth, fifth and sixth floors of the building it also shares with a Post Office and a gym.

Adagio is planning to convert vacant retail space on the ground and mezzanine levels to provide further apartments. Adagio is also planning to add two meeting rooms on the fifth floor which will be in addition to its existing two conference suites. Aparthotel Adagio Liverpool City Centre features a variety of services, including access to a fitness room, self-service laundry facilities and a dry-cleaning service.

The planning application is currently with Liverpool City Council.

Aparthotel Adagio Liverpool City Centre is a few minutes' walk away from Liverpool Central and Lime Street stations.

Several months ago, we reported on plans to convert the House of Fraser store in the centre of Birmingham into a mixed-use site including a new hotel. The store, in Corporation Street and better known as ‘Rackhams’, fell into administration in summer 2018.

Birmingham planning chiefs have now backed the redevelopment plans. The store will be converted into nine floors of offices, retail outlets, bars, restaurants and other leisure spaces. The new boutique hotel will be alongside at the corner of Cherry Street and Temple Row.

The building will be crowned with a new rooftop terrace overlooking Birmingham Cathedral and its grounds.

We will monitor the project’s progress and report the latest developments.
