New plans for a 155-bedroom hotel on the banks of the River Foss in York have been lodged with City of York Council. 

The new hotel would be a part-five and a part-six storey building. It would be located at 46-50 Piccadilly.

The site is currently a 60-space car park with a retail unit fronting Piccadilly. That building would be demolished to make way for the new hotel.

The proposed hotel would have around 155 bedrooms, together with a residential block of eight two-bedroom and three-bedroom apartments.

The new hotel would feature views across the River Foss to York's landmark Clifford's Tower.

Planning consent had already been granted for a 140-bedroom hotel on the site. It would have been named Piccadilly Riverside.

The site is now being operated by Avantis Hotel Group. The group propose to operate the new hotel as a Hampton by Hilton property.

Now the scaffolding has been removed passengers arriving at Manchester Victoria station are being treated to an uninterrupted view of the spectacular new Hotel Indigo currently under construction next to the station. 

When complete, Hotel Indigo Manchester Victoria will combine a refurbished existing Grade II-listed building – the City Building -  with a new 14-storey tower addition.

Hotel Indigo Manchester Victoria Stationwill house 187 bedrooms plus a restaurant and bar. It is scheduled to open autumn 2018.
