Leeds City Council planning committee has unanimously approved DMA’s plans for a 5-star hotel fronting Portland Crescent. The 206 bedroom scheme for developer GB Group will feature a destination roof top bar providing breathtaking views across the city. The site lies sandwiched between Millennium Square, Leeds Metropolitan University, the new Rosebowl development and the recently announced £80M 12,500 seat Leeds Arena, a new concert and sporting venue. In keeping with the surrounding character the hotel will be clad in Portland stone with vertical format full height windows. In contrast to the stone above, the ground and first floor will be fully glazed providing a highly transparent base and enticing images of the bar, restaurant & conference functions within.
