The Holiday Inn hotel, which will be located on the site of the current Wilkinson’s building adjacent to Blackpool North railway station, forms part of the second phase of Muse Developments’ and Blackpool Council’s £100m Talbot Gateway regeneration scheme.
The five-storey building will feature a restaurant, bar, conferencing facilities and ground floor shops.
A temporary 127-space surface level car park and access improvements connecting the proposed new tram station and the railway station, also form part of the plans.
The works require the demolition of the existing Wilko’s retail store currently occupying the site.
Shortlisted firms will be invited to submit tenders in September with a view to work starting in Spring 2020.
Prequalification documents are available from the ProContract tender site.
