We are delighted that the Leeds City Council plans panel has approved Hammerson’s plans for the Victoria Gate Hotel.
Located opposite the newly refurbished Leeds Playhouse, the 15-floor hotel will include 205 rooms, a restaurant, bar, conference facilities, and a gym. Hammerson and ACME have worked over the last decade to start the transformation of this part of the city centre, including the opening of Victoria Gate in 2016, creating new links between existing commercial and cultural uses such as the newly refurbished Leeds Playhouse.
The hotel expands the existing Victoria Gate family of buildings with a tower expressed with a dia-grid facade, with windows of varying dimensions arranged to create a pixelated diamond pattern. The tower meets the ground with three-dimensional terracotta tiles while the restaurant will be glass volume to creating a visual connection between the dining space and the playhouse.
