Hammerson unveils plans for a 14 story hotel adjacent to Victoria Gate centre
Hammerson, which owns and manages Victoria Leeds, has launched plans for the regeneration of a 1,670 sq m site in Leeds City Centre, adjacent to its flagship destination, Victoria Gate.
The plans will see the site, which is currently a temporary surface car park, redeveloped to provide a 14-storey hotel catering for business and leisure guests.
The building would sit adjacent to Victoria Gate in Leeds City Centre and see the regeneration of the land between the existing Victoria Gate multi-storey car park and St Peter’s Street (A61).
The scheme is predicted to support up to approximately 980 construction jobs over the life of the project with the hotel supporting 50 full-time jobs on site upon completion.
Robin Dobson, UK director of development and project management at Hammerson commented: “Hammerson has a strong track record of delivery in Leeds City Centre and these plans for a new, contemporary hotel represent the next step in our wider regeneration plans, creating a mixed-use destination where people can live, work and relax, centered around our premium flagship destination, Victoria Leeds.”
