The Victoria Gate Hotel is one of the first schemes Hammerson has brought forward as part of its new City Quarters concept, which it said will create vibrant mixed-use neighbourhoods surrounding existing flagship destinations, in thriving locations in the UK.
The concept will see Hammerson transform many of its city venues beyond pure retail into neighbourhoods providing homes, workspace, hotel space and accessible public realm.
The hotel will feature 205 spacious rooms, an on-site gym and conferencing facilities. A new contemporary bar and restaurant on the ground floor will welcome both guests and visitors to the City’s Cultural Quarter.
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.”
