A block of apartments on the A63 could be extended with exciting plans revealed to build 30 flats with a gym, roof terrace and a cinema.
Hull-based Iguana Developments wants to create a new five-storey building next to Burnett House, which is already home to a number of apartments and letting agents Mypad Accomodation.
The developer says: “This planning application is for a new building consisting of 30 apartments, with a private cinema and gym at Burnett House.
“The building will provide accommodation for 18 two-bed apartments and 12 one-bed apartments and nine car parking spaces and 16 bike parking spaces.
“The building has been designed to include 30 apartments, offering contemporary living spaces within one and two bedroom apartments.”
The site of the proposed development
The building is the second phase of the recently refurbished Burnett House – a former 19th century hotel which recently underwent a major refurbishment by Hull City Council as part of a wider £2.1m programme to repair historic buildings in Hull’s Old Town.
The area that Iguana Developments propose to build on is currently grassland and therefore a greenfield site. It is situated on the corner of Vicar Lane where it meets the A63.
The site lies within the Old Town Conservation area, which includes a number of listed buildings from the Georgian and Victoria period, such as Hull Minster, the Hands-on History Museum and Hepworths Arcade.

Every floor has been arranged to accommodate three two-bed apartments and two one-bed apartments. The proposed roof level will be home to a roof terrace exclusively for residents and some apartments will have private balconies.
The apartments are set to incorporate elements of “open plan living” and use a natural pallet of materials. Floors will be made of solid timber and doors will be made out of aluminium to create a Nordic theme, according to the developer.
The plan is set to be put before Hull City Council’s planning committee in the upcoming months.
