Central Leeds hotel development to create over 1,000 jobs
Plans for a new Leeds hotel which will create more than 1,000 jobs in its construction and operation have been unveiled.
Property developer Hammerson, which owns and manages shopping destination Victoria Leeds, has today launched plans for the regeneration of a 1,670 sq m site adjacent to Victoria Gate in Leeds city centre.
The plans would see the site between the existing Victoria Gate multi-storey car park and St Peter’s Street transformed into a 14-storey hotel with 205 rooms, as well as a range of amenities.
In addition to an on-site gym and conferencing facilities, the hotel will feature a contemporary bar and restaurant on the ground floor.
It is estimated that the scheme would create up to around 980 construction jobs over the life of the project, with the hotel itself creating 50 full-time jobs upon completion.
Robin Dobson, UK director of development and project management at Hammerson, commented: “We are pleased to be able to share plans for a new hotel within the Victoria Estate as we continue the roll out of our City Quarters concept in thriving locations around the UK and Ireland.
“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.”
