APARTMENTS at a landmark former pub have gone on the market following a transformation.

The Star reported in 2020 after proposals were approved to convert the striking Phoenix Hotel building on Canal Street, St Helens and create an extension at the side of the building.

The application stated the red-brick pub had been subject to numerous re-openings and closures and had been shut since August 2019.

Developers Mirca, which started work in 2022 but faced some delays due to a shortage in building materials, have created a collection of ten luxury apartments situated on the edge of the town centre.

The development, which includes parking, maintains the trend of large, empty buildings being transformed for residential in St Helens.

Prices range from £219,000 to £149,000.

In a statement the agents said: "Each apartment in this development comes equipped with top-notch amenities. Enjoy the convenience of Wi-Fi connection and acoustic soundproofing.

"Each apartment has an intercom systems, full fire and smoke detectors, as well as alarms in place for your peace of mind.
