Dublin-based Staycity is poised to open its latest aparthotel in Liverpool’s Corn Exchange building next month.
The 212-apartment property will have a mix of studios and one- or two-bedroom apartments. All suites will have a kitchen fitted with microwave, refrigerator, dishwasher and stove. Other facilities will include a cafe for meals, a fitness room, a lounge, laundry room and guest parking.
In the city's commercial district, the Corn Exchange building is close to James Street Merseyrail Station and the retail and leisure development Liverpool One. It is also within walking distance of many of Liverpool’s popular tourist spots, including the Cavern Club, Royal Liver building, Albert Dock, the Water Front, Tate Liverpool and the trendy Ropewalks area.
Kearon McCarthy is to be general manager of the new property, as well as managing Staycity’s existing Liverpool site, which opened with 56 apartments on Duke Street in 2009.
The Staycity Group was set up in 2004 by Tom Walsh and his brother Ger. The company now operates in 10 European cities with over 4,500 apartments both open and in the pipeline across the Staycity Aparthotels and Wilde Aparthotels by Staycity brands.
The first of the company’s premium Wilde Aparthotels by Staycity brand was opened earlier this year on London’s Strand, with further Wilde properties to follow in Edinburgh, Manchester and Berlin.
