Plans for a £25m city centre hotel and apartments scheme in York city centre are due to be submitted this month. Known as Piccadilly Riverside, the 146-bed hotel and eight apartments scheme also features a terrace and riverside garden, along with new public areas creating views across the River Foss to the 13th century Cifford’s Tower. Met Consultancy Group supported the project in its early stages, by conducting topographical and building surveys of the area for Northminster Properties Limited.
The 50,000 sq ft scheme, including a 42,000 sq ft hotel and 7,900 sq ft of apartments, will be located on the current site of an NCP car park and motorcycle accessory shop. The proposed development is expected to be a catalyst for the “long-anticipated regeneration” of Piccadilly and the historic castle area. The submission follows two years of pre-planning discussions with City of York planners, the York city architect and Historic England, the public body which looks after England’s historic environment.
