Projects: Lion House

Lion House marks first steps for Probe (Hull) Limited

Probe celebrated the opening of Lion House in October 2014. The property was made into seven multiple occupancy apartments in a building that was previously the Lion Hotel on Hessle Road in Hull.

The property was purchased and has been refurbished as part of the Government’s Empty Homes Programme to help regenerate the City of Hull and provide affordable housing.

The old pub had been empty since 1989 and was subject to vandalism, fire and squatters and the premises were under threat of demolition. Local people are absolutely delighted to see the property refurbished and there is a waiting list of people wanting to move in to the rented accommodation.

The apartments will be opened in April 2015, watch this space for updates.

Probe commissioned project managers Delaney Marling Partnership, PJPS Construction, Ettridge Architecture who as a team completed Lion House on time and slightly under budget.

Kathy Mellors, landlady of the pub from 1975-1989, had taken over the pub from her mother-in-law who resided there from 1953. The family ran a good business, set in the heart of Hessle Road. Mrs Mellors ‘rang the bell’ on the apartment building to mark the official opening of this project.
