Boutique Hotel, Leicester

A new Boutique Hotel in Leicester’s Cultural Quarter is now complete, BSP Consulting were the civil and structural engineers for the scheme at the Grade II listed Georgian building at 16 New Street/2-4 Peacock Lane, which is owned by Leicester Diocesan Board of Finance.

The plans drawn up by Corporate Architecture Ltd, included alterations and an extension to the building, which have converted former empty offices into a new place to stay in the city. The hotel offers 28 double and twin rooms including a top floor Junior Suite.

Two empty office buildings in Peacock Lane and New Street, adjacent to the site of the car park where King Richard III’s remains were discovered, have been converted into the 28-bedroomed St Martins Lodge.

Richard III was buried more than 500 years ago following his death at the Battle of Bosworth in 1485. His remains were discovered by archaeologists in 2012 underneath a Leicester City Council car park. The king was reinterred in Leicester Cathedral in 2015.
