Council approval for Kennedy Tower development in Birmingham

A proposed hotel and conference development project in Birmingham has been given city council approval.

Sanguine Hospitality has proposed a 224-bed hotel and 500-seat conferencing centre at No 1 Snow Hill Plaza, also known as the Kennedy Tower.

Sanguine Hospitality’s third current city centre project will see Kennedy Tower transformed into a Holiday Inn Express.  Bruntwood is the current owner of the building.

Bruntwood Director Keith Fenwick said: “I am delighted to have been able to deliver a second major hotel consent for Birmingham within the last 12 months.

“It was particularly rewarding to hear the council’s planning committee Chairman recognise the work which had gone in to revitalising such an important gateway building.”

Work has already started on Sanguine’s other city projects which include a £30m investment to transform the 1960s tower block Cumberland House on Broad Street into a Hampton by Hilton hotel.

The project, which will include a complete internal refit and a new fascia, is set to be completed by summer 2012.
