Oxford City Council has granted planning permission for a new 140-room hotel under Marriott’s Courtyard brand.

Real estate and private equity company Dominvs Group has secured the local authority’s approval and will develop the hotel.

As part of its application, the organisation referenced the city’s “high volume” of local tourism and revealed that the project would create 70 new jobs for local people.

Designed by architecture studio Urban Innovations, the hotel will be arranged over six storeys and will replace the existing Cooper Callas building – a disused industrial site.

Food and beverage facilities and a roof garden with views of Oxford Castle will be included in the scheme.

The project will be the second collaboration between Dominvs and Marriott, with the pair working on turning Tower Bridge Magistrates Court into a luxury 200-room hotel by Marriott International’s growing portfolio of independent properties, called Autograph Collection Hotels.

Jay Ahluwalia, Dominvs Group director, said he was pleased the proposal was “deemed acceptable in both economic and heritage terms”.

“The detail of the scheme has evolved following extensive consultation and engagement with officers at the City Council along with officers from Historic England,” he added.

“The proposals have also been the subject of public engagement where members of the public and key stakeholders were encouraged to have an open dialogue with our development team to shape the detailed design of the proposal.”
