According to this page on Todd Architect’s website “the hall’s transformation into a destination hospitality and leisure scheme includes approx. 150 stylish hotel rooms and eight new bars and restaurants at ground and basement levels”.
The project will include the “rejuvenation” of a 1,500-seat events space, as well as the addition of a members’ club cocktail lounge, two external terraces and a flagship rooftop restaurant.
The hotel will represent the first property outside of Ireland for Press Up Hospitality Group, which operates seven hotels including The Dean Dublin, The Dean Galway and The Dean Cork.
Commenting on the news Jessica Carlyle-Clarke, head of business development and new opportunities UK at Press Up Hospitality Group, said:
“We are thrilled to have been granted planning permission for Press Up Hospitality Group’s biggest UK project to date in this iconic landmark building in Birmingham. This is the start of a very exciting time for the group.”
