Plans to transform King William House with restaurants and flats in Hull city centre
A 1970s office block in Hull’s Old Town could be heading for a major facelift. King William House in Market Place is best known for its glazed window panels which reflect views of Holy Trinity Church. Built it in 1975, it also includes an Argos store.
Four large ground-floor units for possible leisure use form part of a new marketing brochure. A planning application seeking permission to change the use of offices on the upper floors to 30 one and two-bed flats has also recently been submitted to Hull City Council.
It’s expected a planning application covering the proposed ground-floor leisure use units will be submitted to the council later this year.
Developers of the £25m DoubleTree by Hilton hotel in Hull have announced they have just passed the halfway point of the build.
The hotel, located in Ferensway, is being delivered by Lincolnshire-based developer Manorcrest Group, who began work on the site in October 2016.
With a 14-month construction period the eagerly awaited hotel, which will boast 165 bedrooms and a 1000 sqm ballroom for events and conferences, is due for completion in November this year.
Director of Manorcrest Group, Dean Wann, said: “The construction of the hotel is on track and now we are past the half way point you can really see the building being brought to life.
Over the last eight months, the concrete lift shaft was constructed and the floor slab and structure to the conference centre has been finished.
Over the course of the next few months and until completion, works on site will include the development of a restaurant space and rooftop bar, and the internal fit out of the conference centre and communal areas and the installation of its bedroom pods, which are being delivered from China.
Onsite works are continuing to the roof of the build which is 80 per cent complete, while the decking and concrete floors are being put in place.
