Garnett Netherwood were appointed by Town Centre Securities PLC to refurbish and extend the Merrion Hotel in Leeds City Centre after it closed in 2012.
The refurbishment consists of a new 134 bedroom Ibis Styles hotel in the upper levels of the building, with four retail units on the ground floor. Internally, the alterations include forming larger bedrooms within the existing floor plate and a new level of bedrooms at first floor which was formerly the hotel bar/restaurant.
Externally the alterations will include new windows to the full extent of the upper floors of the hotel and the addition of a render system to the second floor brickwork.
The works also include the demolition of an existing octagonal linked two storey bar building.
The octagon is to be replaced by a new two storey building with hotel bedrooms on the first floor and a Marco Pierre White’s New York Italian restaurant at ground.
Completion is set for Spring 2017.
