Vastint submits plans for Moxy hotel in Bristol

UK: Vastint Hospitality has submitted plans for a seven-storey 214-room Moxy hotel in the St Paul’s area of Bristol.

The application is for a 'stepped' building in Newfoundland Circus, close to Cabot Circus. It says: "Moxy provides an opportunity to diversify the city centre's hotel offering through the provision of small scale, boutique hotels or high quality hotels. Moxy's focus is on the millennial traveller, who understands that style can be delivered at attractive prices."

The application also includes a layby for coaches at the front of the building in Newfoundland Street, where outbound traffic heading for the M32 from the city centre passes. There are also plans for public art inside and outside the building.

The summary adds: "This idea developed from a recognition that Bristol has long been the home of cutting edge street art and we want to encourage talented local artists to design pieces that continue this tradition."

An archaeological survey of the site has also revealed a five metre deep water well, which the developer says it wants to maintain and have on display, in the hope that the general public will use the ground floor lobby as well as hotel guests.

Five one and two-storey linked buildings that previously occupied the site have been demolished.

A planning application for another hotel was approved for the site in 2011, but it was never built.
