A proposed six storey 276 bed hotel designed by RMI Architects for JMK Group. The hotel is proposed to open during summer 2021.

A six storey, 244 room hotel was previously permitted outline planning permission under Z/2006/2864/O as part of Titanic Quarter Phase II. Full permission was granted in July 2010 under Z/2009/1260/F. The proposal was designed by RMI Architects.

The 0.04 acre site was placed on the market by CBRE, on behalf of Titanic Quarter Ltd, in May 2017. The site was offered for sale by way of a 125 year lease. A Financial Statement for Titanic Property Development Ltd in September 2018 noted that the site was agreed for sale, subject to contract.

JMK Group submitted a planning application (LA04/2019/1636/F) in July 2019 proposing to develop a 276 bed hotel with conference facilities, restaurant /cafe / bar uses (including roof top bar), landscaped public realm and car parking. The application was approved in January 2020.

JMK Group consulted on a revised proposal during late 2021. The revised scheme comprises hotel bedrooms for Aloft by Marriott and aparthotel rooms for Residence Inn by Marriott.

JMK Group submitted a planning application (LA04/2022/0293/F) in February 2022 proposing to develop a hotel / aparthotel comprising 162no. hotel beds and 94no. aparthotel beds, conference facilities, restaurant / cafe / bar uses (including roof top bar), gym, landscaped public realm and car / cycle parking.
