Arc & Co advises on £8m loan for 553-bed hotel development



The Arc & Co structured finance team has advised on an £8m loan for a hotel operator in the North West.

The funding will support the initial stages of a 553-bed hotel development in Liverpool. 

The specialist debt advisory secured the net loan of £8m against the residual value of the business plan, and the initial works will be followed by extensive refurbishment. 

Planning consent has been granted to convert a part-vacant, eight-storey office and retail building into a 125-suite hotel.

Once trading, the hotel is expected to have a projected value of over £30m, with the building currently valued at £13m. 

“This was a very interesting transaction given the intuitive response by my clients to reposition this asset,” said Charlie Armstrong, asset finance adviser at Arc & Co (pictured top). 

“Securing a leveraged position against the residual value of this consent shows that there are solutions to the evolving nature of the tertiary office/retail market. 

“Ultimately, it comes down to the strength of the business plan, so kudos to my clients for their delivery of this opportunity.”
