A £6m development to construct a 4 storey, 83 bedroom hotel with ground floor restaurant has begun on the old Jacques scrap yard site on Mold Road – a key gateway into Wrexham.
Wrexhamites will have seen Portakabins being erected and the site entrance being cleared over the last few weeks to allow the work to begin. The building will be a timber frame construction with cladding render and facing brick.
The site was acquired by Worthington Properties in November 2012.
Russell Worthington, development director of Worthington Properties said “Premier Inn is a well-established hotel chain offering quality accommodation across the country and we are delighted to work in partnership with them to deliver a new hotel in the town, which will also act as a catalyst for further regeneration.
“As a business we are carving out a well-deserved reputation for delivering projects of this kind and have recently completed a £10.5m Premier Inn in Preston and two Travelodge hotels worth £25m in Manchester and Liverpool.”
Construction is now underway and is expected to complete in mid 2013, with the hotel opening shortly after.
