PLANS to open an aparthotel in an empty 19602 building in Worcester city centre have been revealed, with the aim of kick-starting the regeneration of a street currently the centre of anti-social behaviour and drug use.

The mix of 17 apartments across four floors will be operated by Livity, an aparthotel and rental operator who started work on the building during the first lockdown to provide a Covid-19 resilient environment for young professionals who would prefer self-contained accommodation as opposed to a house share.
