Details of new Lime Street hotel revealed

FURTHER details on the conversion of Liverpool’s North Western Hall have been revealed, following the appointment of an interior design consultancy on the project.

One of only three Radisson REDs in the UK, the 201 room hotel sits opposite St George’s Hall and is directly linked to Lime Street Station.

Koncept ID has secured a contract with Deansgate Contractors and will work alongside Radisson Hotel Group and an independently owned European fund manager to convert the 1871 Grade II listed building.

The new hotel will be the latest edition to the Radisson RED brand – a concept developed to appeal to a millennial audience through art, music and fashion.

Trademark features of Radisson RED include art installations, high-power technology and open-plan design

Ground floor public spaces will incorporate a lounge area, meeting rooms and multifunctional break-out space. There is also a restaurant situated on the ground floor.

The basement contains a meeting and conference area with breakout space and coffee bar, along with separate gym facilities.

Koncept ID will manage the interior design of the £20million+ project. Radisson RED Liverpool is due for completion early 2022.

Jenny Denton, lead designer, said: “North Western Hall is one of Liverpool’s most iconic landmarks and thanks to its central location and direct access to the train station, the hotel has the potential to become a real destination for the city.”

Paul Scott, associate designer on the project, continued: “As a design team, we’ve been spoiled with a winning combination of stunning period features and an exciting design brief. Radisson RED hotels bring a serious dose of style and attitude to a city and with such a thriving culture already, Liverpool is the ideal home for the newest addition.”
