quite. a restaurant/skybar would make sense there. only 31m right now... pah.The curved frontage looks dramatic and impressive, it's just a shame that couldn't have extended up to the top of the building, ie up another two floors. That would make the building look quite a bit more iconic.
That's great news! Do you have some insider info that has confirmed the start of the hotel? It would be fantastic for Leeds to carry on the momentum generated by the arena and Trinity.work on this hotel is starting very soon if it hasn't started already. new hoardings have gone up and i noticed yesterday that Leeds Met have had to change their building evacuation information due to that side of the site being restricted.
Also expect to see scaffolding going up on their Calverley Building very very soon too...both of these and the new build student tower should make this corner of town a hive of activity. can't wait!!
That report isn't for this hotel proposal, that is the nearby Hilton on Portland Crescent, which has it's own thread.
