A planning application has been submitted by developers working with aparthotel brand Staycity to construct a new property in York.
The proposals would see the Jinnah restaurant, Minster Car Hire Garage and The Micklegate at 127 bar demolished to make way for the new 152 aparthotel, which would operate under Staycity’s Wilde brand.
If given the green light, the £35m development would comprise 122 studio hotel rooms and 30 apartment hotel rooms, as well as a shop or restaurant on the ground floor.
A spokesman for North Star, developers of the site, said: “Whilst the application has now been validated, we are currently working to finesse the design, following feedback at our recent public consultation and we have a new design team working this up now. We are confident that it will be a great addition to this historic street.
“We have also had significant interest from prominent local businesses who would like to expand into the new commercial space that these plans will deliver.”
Staycity launched its Wilde brand, inspired by Oscar Wilde, in April 2018 in London, with the opening of Wilde, The Strand.
Staycity also plans to roll out the Wilde brand across gateway city centre locations throughout Europe, with a second on Edinburgh’s King’s Stables Road due to open at the end of 2019, two properties in Berlin launching in 2019/2020, and another on Manchester’s St Peter’s Square opening in 2020 with 256 apartments.
