George Sell George Sell Uploaded 05 May 2019


UK: Plans have been submitted to convert a a Grade II-listed hotel in Leeds in to an aparthotel.

Developer Khalbros has submitted plans to convert the Jubilee Hotel on The Headrow, which was built opposite Leeds Town Hall in 1904.

It was home to lapdancing club Red Leopard until 2014 - but was previously a hotel with an Edwardian "gin palace" bar.

If approved, the aparthotel will have 38 rooms, a bar on the ground floor and a gym.

A new six-storey building with retail units would also be constructed at 19-20 East Parade as part of the proposals, requiring the demolition of an existing building on the site.

The Jubilee Hotel was purchased at auction for £1.9million in 2017. More than 200 parties expressed interest in buying it.

The plans will go before Leeds City Council on May 9.
