About the project:
This is a conversion of a 1960’s former Aviva office building in York into a luxury 150 bed Malmaison Boutique hotel. The hotel is part conversion and part extension and is one of several hotels we are currently building. The building sits in a sensitive location in front of the listed Grand Hotel and adjacent to the River Ouse; as such we had to undertake extensive consultation both with Historic England and the City Planners to achieve approval. The hotel will include a spectacular Sky Bar and Restaurant overlooking the York City walls. The project will take 75 weeks and the hotel is due to open in April 2020.
