Hull's futuristic Europa House could be transformed into flats

By Hull Daily Mail | Posted: 8 May 2017

One of the city's best-known buildings could be about to get a major transformation.

Europa House, in Ferensway, city centre, has served as a five-storey office building for the past four decades. It currently houses businesses including Hull Trains.

At an auction at the Berkeley Hotel in Knightsbridge last year, the building was sold for just £12,000.

And now a planning application has been submitted to Hull City Council to completely renovate the building from offices into 69 flats.

The planning application says: "Change of use from offices (upper floors 1 – 5) to 69 flats."

No planning documents have been submitted to the council as of yet so details are scarce.

Europa House, which is situated by the Royal Hotel, was built in 1975 based on the designs of Bradford architects John Brunton and Partners.

The gold, reflective cladding around the front of the building was seen at the time as highly futuristic and has made it one of the most photographed buildings in the city centre.
