DLG to overhaul landmark Leeds nightclub

[First look + plans] Work is to start this month on DLG Architects’ revamp of the abandoned Majestic nightclub in Leeds city centre

The listed 1920s landmark and former cinema in City Square has been empty since 2006 when the nightclub shut its doors.

Bought by developer Rushbond last year (2010), the building boasts a 21m-wide domed roof and will be converted into a ‘new leisure destination’.

The scheme could re-open before the end of the year.

Julian Monaghan Partner at DLG Architects said: ‘We are delighted to secure for Rushbond a planning consent on such a significant building which sits at a key visitor gateway to the city centre.  The development plans will only compliment the existing attraction of City Square, supporting a sustainable future for this landmark building with new uses.’
