The five storey hotel complex, on the site of a former furniture business at High Street west, is expected to go on site in June this year with a 14 month construction period.
“This is a very exciting project for Sunniside and the city in general,” said Paul Hacking Director of Reid Jubb Brown Architecture.
“We have made the front façade of the building work as an attractive piece of art with the use of striking but tasteful coloured glass and copper framing. It will provide a powerful design statement in the centre of the city consistent with supporting a commercial venture. The back of the building provides access to 16 luxury apartments and we have taken care to design an entirely lower scale feel, ideal for residents.”
There will also be two substantial retail spaces at street level. The largest located at the front is 270sqm ideal for a restaurant, with the second, 60sqm retail space, located at the rear on the corner of Nile Street and Little Villiers Street, more consistent with the needs of a shop of some kind. There is also a significant parking provision and outdoor residential courtyard in the centre of the building.
