Plans to restore the Birmingham's Grand Hotel and turn it into a "first-class business destination" have been submitted to Birmingham Council.
Property firm Hortons' Estates and architects Berman Guedes Stretton are masterminding the project to renovate the 19th century structure after 11 years of dereliction.
Should it get the go-ahead, the £30 million scheme will see the building's facade given a facelift and the introduction of 152 high-spec, spacious bedrooms, 8 new suites, roof terraces and increased facilities space.
There will also be two new restaurants, a bar, conference spaces, public rooms and the street-facing terrace of shops will be renovated.
Commenting on the plans, Hamish McMichael, the Grand Hotel project director, said: "Hortons' Estates' planned restoration and refurbishment of the hotel will be rescuing a building of grace and character that is an important landmark for Birmingham."
Thomson Plevins designed the Grade II listed hotel, which was built back in 1875 on the prestigious Colmore Row.
