The Liverpool-based company wants to transform the waterfront building into Liverpool's "most iconic wedding and events venue".

Plans for the 17,700sqft space, located next to the Liver Building include a brasserie, Michelin star restaurant and two separate event spaces.

Signature Living has transformed several of the city's most striking buildings into successful hotels including 30 James Street and The Shankly Hotel.

Lawrence Kenwright, founder and chairman of Signature Living, said: "Acquiring the Cunard Building is the ideal next step for Signature and the wedding and events aspect of the company. There would be no better or more luxurious weddings venue in Liverpool; with truly breath-taking views and the illustrious history of the building, I’m certain anyone would love to get married there. We are excited to be moving forward with these plans and hope to complete the deal imminently."
