Plans for a six storey hotel and luxury restaurant in Lincoln city centre have been approved following a meeting of the City of Lincoln Council’s planning committee last month (23rd May).
Designed by Lincoln-based architects LK2, plans for the 5,371 sq ft site include a 63-bedroom hotel and a top floor independent restaurant, offering fine dining and stunning views of the city.
Plans were submitted by Mike Hayes-Cowley of APS Properties, who currently leases the New Theatre Royal Lincoln.
In order for work to start on site, the current building will be demolished to make room for the new build, which has a contemporary Art Deco design.
Adam Skidmore, architectural designer at LK2 said:
“We’re delighted to be working on this scheme. As a Lincoln-based firm, we’re proud to be part of the transformation of the city, boosting the tourist economy and bringing in more visitors.”
“This new development will revitalise this area and improve the streetscape with a fresher, more contemporary appearance, whilst providing visitors to Lincoln with quality hotel accommodation and a unique dining experience that can’t be found anywhere else in Lincoln.”
“We have worked closely with Lincoln City Council to ensure the building design reflects the character of the surrounding area, whilst offering a modern contribution to the city.”
