Morgan Sindall Construction has reached the highest point of its construction work on what will become the tallest hotel in Liverpool.

Liverpool’s £38m Novotel Hotel tops out

Positioned opposite the Royal Liverpool Hospital, the £38m Novotel venue will comprise 221 rooms.

Covering 16 storeys, it will sit in Paddington Village within the 450-acre Knowledge Quarter Liverpool (KQ Liverpool) Mayoral Development Zone.

The hotel will be a UK flagship for hospitality group Accor, with the design led by Ryder Architecture. The hotel’s public areas have been brought forward by Koncept, with Faithful+Gould serving as project manager.

It will open in the spring of 2022 and be managed by Legacy Hotels & Resorts.

Richard Potts, Liverpool area director for Morgan Sindall Construction, said: “Although we’ve not been able to mark the topping out of the Novotel in Paddington Village with a traditional ceremony, it’s still right that we celebrate what is an excellent achievement by everyone who has played a role in getting us this to this moment in the project.

“The hospitality sector will be crucial to supporting the economic recovery of the Liverpool City Region in the wake of Covid-19, and we’re very proud to be playing our role in creating what is not only a visually dynamic new building, but also a source both of employment opportunities for local people and a destination that will welcome people from around the world to our wonderful city for many years to come.”

Acting Mayor for Liverpool Wendy Simon added: “The topping out of the new Novotel is the latest landmark moment for Paddington Village and for Liverpool’s Knowledge Quarter.

“Despite the pandemic, progress at Paddington Village has been hugely impressive and its transformation over the past 12 months has been remarkable in the circumstances.”
