Plans in for Hull Radisson

Architect KKA Studio has designed a 116-bedroom hotel for a site on Anlaby Road, opposite Hull Paragon station.

Plans have now been lodged with Hull City Council by advisor Frost Planning for the 51-59 Anlaby Road site, which formerly housed the New York Hotel. The developer is Tawazun London.

The six-storey hotel, for which Radisson is lined up as operator, will include a restaurant and conferencing hall.

The overall size is proposed as 55,000 sq ft, around 7,000 sq ft smaller than a previously consented but unbuilt hotel put forward for the site

Radisson’s intended site neighbours the grade two-listed Turner Court building. Part of the hotel design will step dfown to two storeys, to better align with adjoining retail buildings.

KKA’s design & access statement said: “Currently the derelict site impacts negatively on the setting of the listed building behind. The proposed development seeks to contribute a positive built edge to both Midland Street and Anlaby Road which will improve the character and quality of the local area.

“The building heights and massing have respected the previously approved design and special character of the listed building. The proposal provides a sustainable hotel development which will contribute a high quality built form to meet employment needs and to support the local visitor economy.”

The site is mainly owned by the applicant, with part of it owned by Hull City Council and a small portion unregistered.

A previous Radisson-linked hotel scheme at the site was approved in 2019 – also fir six storeys, with 110 rooms – but the consent has now lapsed. An earlier attempt to secure consent for the site in 2017 was refused.

The application can be viewed on Hull City Council’s planning portal with the reference 23/02867/FULL.

A Radisson hotel has this summer been approved in Huddersfield. KKA has been busy in the sector with clients such as Hilton Garden Inn, and has also recently worked on projects with Bristol City and Liverpool football clubs.

Hull needs investment but this looks like a Soviet style monstrosity. It’s opposite one of the finest railway stations (architecturally) in England, an urgent redesign is needed.


When actually is work going to commence on this project, also is a 9 story Hotel still part of the project on castle Street next to the reinstalled Earl De Grey and castle buildings, or is this just another artists impression let down??.
