A £12 million boutique hotel on the site of a 1970s car park in Leeds has been granted planning approval.The site of the car park in Greek Street will feature a 10-storey 90-bedroom hotel operated by boutique brand Dakota, which was founded by Malmaison creator Ken McCulloch.
Developer Evans Property Group wants to demolish the 220-space car park as part of a £20 million overhaul of its assets in the Bond Court area.The hotel will include a basement level restaurant to be accessed off Greek Street and a ground floor bar and terrace area.

We are committed to investing in Leeds and we were keen to bring this unique offering to our home city. We are confident that this new venture will be a superb addition to Leeds’ hotel offering, and will successfully regenerate a redundant site in one of the city’s most important locations.”
