Plans have been submitted to transform the upper floors of a prominent building in Harrogate town centre into a carbon neutral aparthotel.
It was recently announced by owners of the building, Countrylarge, that fashion and lifestyle retailer, Oliver Bonas, would take the ground floor.
These plans for the 17-room aparthotel will complete the renovations of the property and will be run by Beyond, who specialise in operating carbon neutral aparthotels.
Tom Jackson, Commercial property partner at Schofield Sweeney is advising on the project alongside architect Corstophine + Wright, planning consultant Quod and conservation consultants, Woodhall.
“It has been great working with Countrylarge on this fantastic project from site acquisition through to the current stage. The plans for the James Street scheme promise to deliver a really exciting new addition to Harrogate town centre.” Tom Jackson.
Antony Rosindale from Countrylarge, owners of the building, said: “This planning application will complete the transformation of the building and bring economic benefits to the town centre. It is a great way to fully utilise the whole building and we are very excited to have Beyond operating it for us.”
The conversion of the upper floors into the aparthotel will start as soon as possible, if planning permission is granted.
