A up and coming Liverpool development that is already Wikipedia worthy
Albion house has long been striking part of the Liverpool World Heritage water front.
The unique construction of the building is completed in a stripe effect of red brick and white Portland stone. This effect allows Albion house to stand out against the surrounding structures.
Stunning castle like turrets and a prominent corner location provide Signature Living an amazing foundation to create a first class Liverpool hotel.
A new lease of life for the former White Star building
Expected to open in April 2014, Signature Living are anticipating the hotel to bring a huge influx of international tourism.
Already responsible for accommodating a huge portion of Liverpool tourists this next venture will expand Signature Living’s current 310 bed capacity by almost 50%.
For decades now Albion house has stood vacant, unused and neglected. A building with such a fascinating history and aesthetically appealing features is finally being put to good use.
The Signature Living style will be injected into the renovation whilst still retaining the pieces of the building that are historically relevant.
A theme to reflect an important piece of history
The story of the RMS Titanic is world renowned, made even more prominent by 1997 James Cameron’s epic movie, Titanic.
The story has a huge following of experts and those simply interested in the origin of the ship.
There is also a fascination with the lives of the passengers, many of whom where among the rich and famous. People crave further details and stories of those that foundered with the vessel and those that survived.
Albion house is already a landmark in the RMS Titanic’s history. It is recorded that hundreds of people gathered around the outside of the building after learning of RMS Titanic’s demise. Desperate for news of loved ones who were on board. The news of the number of lives lost was actually announced from a balcony of the building.
Looking forward to open day
