Birmingham’s Central Hall will convert into a luxurious hotel

 Friday, October 6, 2017

Birmingham's Central HallTo attract more tourists in London, Birmingham’s Central Hall is now taking a turn to form it into a £35m hotel and rooftop restaurant.

 

 

It is one of Birmingham’s most famous yet neglected buildings now converting into a hotel with the hands of London-based property investor Ciel Capital.

 

 

London-based property investor Ciel Capital has unveiled the transformation plans to transform the Grade II*-listed Methodist Central Hall into a leisure complex with a hotel, apart-hotel and a mix of retail and food units.

 

 

 

Ciel Capital said it expected the hotel in Corporation Street to have around 160 beds, with a further 60 units in the apart-hotel element.

 

 

 

Methodist Central Hall was previously used as a nightclub, designed by Ewan Harper, James A. Harper. Erected in the year 1904, Methodist Central Hall has distinctive tower and terracotta exterior, which has made it an oldest city landmark.

 

 

Methodist Central Hall has fallen into a state of disrepair in recent years and has had vegetation growing out of the upper floors. This prompted Historic England to add it to its ‘Heritage at Risk’ register.

 

 

 

Ciel Capital acquired the building in May 2017 and said it had been aware of Central Hall and its unique architectural features for several years but acknowledged the site needed the substantial investment and restoration to secure its long-term future.
