Plans for 205-bed hotel approved
Hammerson has announced that Leeds City Council has approved plans for a new 205-bed hotel adjacent to its retail and leisure destination, Victoria Gate.
The City Quarters concept aims to create mixed-use neighbourhoods surrounding Hammerson’s existing flagship destinations. The concept will see Hammerson transform many of its city venues beyond pure retail into successful neighbourhoods providing homes, workspace, hotel rooms and public realm.
Robin Dobson, UK director of development and project management at Hammerson said, “Delivering on our City Quarters concept is a key priority for Hammerson and this is our third planning consent in the last twelve months. Not only does this mark an important step in our wider plans to create a thriving new cultural quarter in Leeds City Centre, it also demonstrates progress in our wider strategy to support our existing assets by moving beyond pure retail.”
