PLANS have been submitted to Bristol City Council to turn two office buildings into a new boutique hotel.
The site of the proposed hotel is in the city’s Queen’s Square Conservation Area, in the heart of what was once the banking and commercial heart of Bristol.
Art deco, Grade II listed 37-39 Corn Street was built in the 1930s to a design by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott whose other famous designs include the iconic red telephone box and Battersea Power Station.
Originally used as the offices of Friends Provident, the building and neighbouring 1960s-built 41 Corn Street would become a 126 bedroom hotel, if planners approve the scheme.
Documents submitted with the planning application say that the car free Corn Street Hotel would be seek to “reflect Bristol’s reputation as a creative and environmentally conscious city.”
Planning permission has previously been granted to turn the site into student accommodation.
