New plans have been lodged to convert a Birmingham city centre hotel into an apart-hotel complex.
The Royal Angus Hotel, in St Chads Queensway, was bought by Birmingham developer SevenCapital last summer.
The company has now submitted proposals to convert the 186-bedroom hotel into an apart-hotel containing 174 studios and apartment-style rooms.
Plans also include the introduction of new communal amenities on the ground and first floors.

The aparthotel will be an expansion on SevenCapital’s existing hospitality business which includes the four-star Park Regis Hotel in Broad Street, with the Royal Angus also set to be rebranded as a Park Regis if the plans win consent.
Bal Sohal, chairman of the firm primarily known for its work in the residential sector, said: “Our plans for the Royal Angus Hotel will see it completely revitalised and given a new lease of life to better appeal to and welcome visitors to central Birmingham.
“The reconfiguration will mean improved accommodation and better amenities within the hotel itself allowing for comfortable stays whether it’s for two nights or two months.
“We look forward to plans being approved and getting to work on the transformation.”
