A new six-storey hotel could be built across the road from Hull’s Paragon Station on the site of the former New York Hotel.
Plans for a 110-room hotel with first-floor restaurant, banqueting facilities and car parking on vacant land in Anlaby Road have been submitted to Hull City Council planners.
The former hotel building on the site was demolished in 2016 after falling into a state of disrepair and suffering from fire damage and vandalism.
The site had been vacant for more than 10 years. Before that, it had contained the former hotel, Salvation Army Citadel and the Albert Hall in Midland Street.

The development would “offer a contemporary addition to the gateway route” into Hull city centre, according to the plans, while also “taking design cues from the buildings historically occupying the site and the surrounding uses”.
A glazed ground floor frontage would maintain visibility from Anlaby Road and provide natural surveillance for the car parking area, according to the plans. The glazing would be taken up to first floor level, where the restaurant would be located.
The design offers space for conferencing, interaction and entertainment, with amenity spaces incorporated with access off the main social areas.
