THE construction of a new hotel and convenience store in the centre of Portsmouth will begin later this year.

Supermarket chain Tesco and Costa Coffee have put their names forward to take over the lease of two shops under the new Premier Inn hotel.

The development will be the latest addition to the city’s skyline, with an 83-bedroom hotel in Dugald Drummond Street being built on the site of the now-disused 1960s-built Midland House.

Workers are already on site, and the demolition of the existing building is expected to take place early during in the summer.

Once the new building is completed in mid-2015, Premier Inn will take a lease on the site for the hotel.

It is expected the hotel chain will move in and open during the 2015/16 financial year.

Meaning if any explorers want a nosey before it is lost forever, better be quick!
