Planning permission was granted by Leeds City Council in February 2014 for the decommissioned car park and adjacent restaurant to be demolished to make way for a 10-storey, 90-bedroom hotel.
Demolition Services is now on site and expects to complete demolition of the car park in December. An adjacent restaurant will be demolished by the end of January 2015 and construction of the hotel should start in summer 2015.
The new hotel forms part of Evans’ wider redevelopment of the Bond Court area of the city, with neighbouring buildings Minerva and Capitol House being extensively remodelled.
Evans director Alan Syers said: “The demolition of the car park is the first step in bringing this strategically positioned, redundant site back to life. Following the success of Minerva and the imminent completion of Capitol House, the hotel will continue our investment into this critical quarter of Leeds City Centre and contribute to the vibrancy of Greek Street.”
