Green light for Lincoln hotel and restaurant
Plans for a six storey hotel and luxury restaurant in Lincoln city centre have been approved following a meeting of the City of Lincoln Council’s planning committee earlier this year (23 May).
Designed by LK2, plans for the 5,371 sq ft site include a 63-bedroom hotel and a top floor independent restaurant, offering fine dining and stunning views of the city.
Adam Skidmore, architectural designer said: “We’re delighted to be working on this scheme. As a Lincoln-based firm, we’re proud to be part of the transformation of the city, boosting the tourist economy and bringing in more visitors.”
In order for work to start on site, the current building will be demolished to make room for the new building, which has a contemporary Art Deco design.
The new building has been designed by LK2’s team to maximise the number of hotel rooms and optimise the quality of internal spaces, due to the site’s footprint being small and irregularly shaped.
Adam added: “This new development will revitalise this area and improve the streetscape with a fresher, more contemporary appearance, whilst providing visitors to Lincoln with quality hotel accommodation and a unique dining experience that can’t be found anywhere else in Lincoln.
“We have worked closely with Lincoln City Council to ensure the building design reflects the character of the surrounding area, whilst offering a modern contribution to the city.”
