An east Hull amusement arcade is set to almost double in size and change its name.
Quicksilver in Holderness Road is set to expand into an empty unit next door, if planning approval is given.
Council planners turned down a previous application to grant planning permission for the site, however, a new application has now been submitted.
If successful, the shop will change its name and be given a facelift.
It will be renamed Admiral and new dark blue and yellow panels would go up in place of the existing red Quicksilver sign and signs for the former British Heart Foundation store that closed in 2016.
As is already the case, the shop would be next door to Cashino, another amusement arcade, and the expansion would put it beside Braim Newsagents.

Plans show the entrance would be moved into the currently vacant section, while new TV screens would be put in facing outwards into the pavement.
In the plans submitted to Hull City Council, the new arcade, which would also be close to Boots pharmacy, Cooplands and Lloyds Banks, has been described as an "adult gaming centre".
A previous application for the same site was turned down because it would have taken the amount of non-retail units in the busy shopping street above a 30 per cent limit set by the authority.
The initial plans were also refused for the proposed external alterations and for the risk management assessment not adequately addressing the impact of flooding.
