Boutique group Malmaison has reportedly altered its plans to convert the former Aviva building in York into its next property.
The group, who signed a deal to create a new boutique in Yorkshire House in January, has now shifted from its original application to transform the seven-story office building into a 124-bed hotel with 33 serviced apartments.
Now Malmaison is bidding to create a 150-bed hotel with meeting rooms, plus a rooftop extension that would see a new sky bar housed in the top of the building.
The serviced apartments will no longer form part of the plan.
A proposal for a six-storey side extension has also been withdrawn.
Yorkshire Ventures chairman Richard Jackson said: “We have submitted a revised planning application for the redevelopment of Yorkshire House, which reflects Malmaison’s operational requirements.
“The application now includes meeting rooms, further hotel bedrooms and a new sky bar, instead of serviced apartments.”
News first emerged in October 2016 that Malmaison and sister company Hotel du Vin had taken over the former Aviva building on Rougier Street.
