The applications sub-committee yesterday approved revisions to the £65 million redevelopment of the historic waterfront site for a 68 one- and two-bedroom apartment hotel.
It will cover three floors above the transportation centre previously designated for 46 flats and will overlook the Esplanade.
The director of Jersey Tourism, David de Carteret, welcomed the news.
‘This is another link in the new product chain as far as Jersey is concerned,’ he said.
‘We have several hotel developments either just completed or in the process of being completed.
This is exactly what the industry needs – a new product to enhance what we already have in the Island and to help us attract the younger short-break market.’ A ’boutique hotel’ is planned for the grassed annex to the west of the site, although plans have yet to be submitted, and work is under way on the Radisson SAS hotel to the west of the waterfront.
