Located in Torwood Street, Torquay, this £20.5m development will provide retail units, commercial office space and a 131 bedroom hotel for Hampton by Hilton.
With a ground level difference of 7.5m across the site, this presented challenges to the piling and groundworks design and involved extensive temporary works to the adjoining properties and public highway. The structural frame is a reinforced concrete frame with metsec infill and a mixture of Permian sandstone, facing brick, tile and rendered finishes.
With panoramic views across Torquay, the hotel has 131 bedrooms finished to a very high quality in association with the Hilton brand. The main reception, bar and restaurant are situated on the third floor of the development with back of house areas located on the second and third floors. Retail units are located on the ground floor with the commercial offices across the first and second floors.
Construction work started in September 2018 on this development which has been an important step forward for the regeneration of the resort's town centre.
