A former lap dancing club in Leeds could be transformed into a new boutique hotel if plans are given the green light.
A proposal has been submitted by Pearce Bottomley Architects, acting on behalf of The APM Ltd, to convert Deep Blue at 36 Wellington Street into a new hotel.
The four-storey property neighbours The Majestic, which is currently undergoing its own development to become a new 65,000 ft grade A office space.
If given the go ahead, the club will be partially demolished and then converted into a five-storey property.
The ground floor will be home to the hotel reception, foyer, lounge and restaurant area, while the first, second and third floors will each house seven bedrooms, bringing the total bedroom count to 21.
The fourth/roof floor will house roof top terrace and garden with a bar.
The design and access statement concluded that the main benefits of the proposal included: “Restoring a use to the building and introducing activities in the area to complement existing businesses.
“Saving the building from dilapidation by putting a sustainable use which is committed to high standards of appearance and ethical responsibility.
“Introducing the landscape garden to the roof by introduction of a roof garden to the link between the towers with seating as part of restaurant which is open to the public to enjoy the building and entertainment.
“Creating employment for the community [and] providing much needed hotel accommodation in central Leeds.”
