The Shankly Hotel, Development Update: June 2015
Works at The Shankly Hotel in Liverpool commenced at the start of March after the developer concluded the acquisition of the property from Liverpool City Council. The £20million renovation will see the former council offices in the city centre, transformed into a luxury 87-bedroom football themed hotel in honour of the legendary Liverpool FC manager Bill Shankly.
The hotel will create more than 200 jobs for the city, and will also feature a museum dedicated to Bill Shankly, which will contain never-before-seen memorabilia from the private family collection, covering his glittering reign at Anfield. The developer believes the museum will represent a permanent tribute to the life of Bill Shankly and expects it to become a destination for football heritage for people from all over the world.
A bar and sports-themed restaurant are also planned for the venue, which is scheduled to open in time for the Premiership football season in August.
The developer is planning to “radically transform” this landmark city centre building into a truly international hotel and tourist destination. Providing more than just luxury accommodation, they want it to be a tourist attraction in its own right.
The developer tells; “This won’t just be a hotel for fans of Liverpool football club because Bill Shankly is a name that is respected by fans of sport the world over. He is an icon in the world of football. His fantastic story will be told at the Shankly Hotel to give guests a sense of his greatest achievements.
“It might surprise some that it will not be all about his time at Liverpool Football Club. The hotel will feature his time at Carlisle United, Preston North End and even the special relationship he had with Everton.”
The Shankly Hotel is the latest high profile development after opening the 30 James Street Hotel last year following restoration of the building that was once the headquarters of the Titanic’s White Star Line.
Rooms at The Shankly Hotel are selling rapidly, but there are still some excellent options remaining. Offering investors up to 10.5% NET returns over a 10 year period, it’s a secure opportunity with a massively proven developer.
