THE WHITE STAR LINE'S HEAD OFFICE IN LIVERPOOL c.1912

Titanic-themed hotel plan for disused Liverpool building

 

Albion House in Liverpool could become a Titanic-themed apartment hotel

A disused building in Liverpool could be turned into a Titanic-themed hotel.

Albion House, a Grade-II listed building on The Strand, Liverpool, was once the headquarters of White Star Line, operators of the cruise liner which sank in 1912.

Developers Signature Living have acquired the building and hope to develop it as an apartment hotel.

Work could begin in October if planning permission is granted by the council.

Empty for decades

Hundreds of people gathered outside Albion House when the Titanic sank, desperate for news about their relatives.

The building has lain empty for decades.

The developers want to turn it into a 350-bed hotel with a gym, bar and restaurant.

Liverpool already has a floating Titanic-themed hotel moored in Albert Dock.

    I agree about the proposed new use of the White Star HQ. The principals undertaking the project are Lawrence & Katie Kenwright of ‘Signature Living’. Am sure your offer would be of great interest to them.
