Planning Permission Granted for FAT Properties’ Boutique Aparthotel
We are delighted to announce that planning permission has been granted for the change of use from shop to boutique aparthotel, located in Lancaster city centre.
HPA will be restoring the layout of the building and aiding FAT Properties in its transformation of the luxury aparthotel. There are two storeys available for the development of seven brand new rooms, as well as the inclusion of a reception and on-site residents’ café. As this property is a grade II listed building, HPA will ensure the preservation of its structure and features, in order to contribute to the high street’s prosperity whilst also retaining the site’s historical significance, dating back to the early eighteenth century.
Philippa and Tom established FAT Properties in 2013, recognising a gap in the market, and have since been involved in enhancing student accommodation and wellbeing not only in Lancaster, but regionally across a range of locations. This has since prompted a desire to extend their vision, regenerating the local tourist trade and community with easier short stay accessibility right in the heart of the city.
HPA looks forward to collaborating on this future project! To read more about FAT Properties, click here.
