A new 111-room hotel could be heading to Hull city centre.
Plans for the proposed development in Anlaby Road opposite Paragon Station have been officially submitted to Hull City Council.
If given the go-ahead, it would be built on a cleared site previously occupied by the New York bar and hotel complex which was demolished three years ago.

The scheme would also continue a recent boom in hotel development in the city centre. The £25m Double Tree by Hilton hotel opened in Ferensway just before Christmas.
2017 also saw a new 22-bed hotel open above the Admiral of the Humber pub in Carr Lane while the new Hideout Hotel next to Hull Minister staked a claim to be Hull's first boutique hotel when it opened the doors to 15 one and two-bed short-stay apartments.
There are also plans for a hotel in the new K2 development taking shape in the former Kingston House high-rise office office block in Bond Street.
The Anlaby Road application has been submitted by London-based ReDesign Architecture Ltd, acting as agents for the site owners.
It maps out designs for a six-floor 111-bed hotel with retail space on the ground floor and 19 off-street parking spaces
A design and access statement supporting the application says: "A high-quality building has been proposed to enhance the gateway to the city and improve and repair the urban fabric which has been effected by the vacant, derelict site.

"The building addresses the primary route of Anlaby Road with a modern elevation and contemporary material pallet.
"The proposed development seeks to contribute a positive built edge to both Midland Street and Anlaby Road which will improve the character and quality of the area.
"The application proposal provides a sustainable and suitable hotel and retail development which will contribute a high quality built form to meet local employment needs and to support the visitor economy."
The application is expected to go before planning councillors in the spring.
A previous approved plan for a 124-bed hotel never got off the drawing board, leading to a lengthy catalogue of vandalism at the old New York building before a serious fire ripped through the property in 2015.
