GB Building wins ВЈ30m Leeds hotel

A joint venture between GB Building Solutions and developer Oxford Hotels has obtained planning permission to build a new 244 bedroom hotel worth ВЈ30m in the centre of Leeds. 

Oxford GB will appoint a hotel operator imminently and it is anticipated that the hotel will take two years to build and should be open and running successfully by early 2012.

The hotel will be constructed by GB Building Solutions. Simon Wood, chairman of Oxford GB said: "Oxford GB’s aim is to provide a high quality hotel, right where it is most needed.  With so much development hotel rooms in Leeds will be in high demand, there is limited competition in this part of the city, and the planned concert arena is the icing on the cake.

"Achieving planning permission for a good quality hotel in this area means that we can provide much needed hotel accommodation right in the heart of Leeds, at a time that will tie in with greatly increased demand."
