Marcus Hotel, Portrush
This project, designed by conservation specialists Consarc Architects, will restore and preserve much of the listed building located on Main Street, Portrush. The development will provide 83 guest bedrooms and public areas which will include a cafe, bar and restaurant. The project will include the restoration of the former Northern Bank, across the road, which will be refurbished to create 6 serviced apartments and a café bar.
This investment across the two buildings will total £10m and will create 48 jobs during the construction phase and a further 48 direct and indirect jobs when open and trading. The intention is for work to commence on the hotel in 2023 and will complete by the start of 2025 to be ready for the return of the Open Championship.
