A local property developer is hoping the Lord Line building can become a key part of the city’s heritage.

A Hull property developer, who specialises in historic restorations, believes the Lord Line building should be restored to become a pivotal part of the city’s heritage.

The former trawler office is a well recognised landmark in the city, but has been empty now for 40 years. It has regularly been the target of vandalism and arson attacks, most recently just last week.

Francis Daly, who’s tried to buy the building previously from ABP, says the time is right to put it to better use. He told KCFM, “Hull doesn’t have that many historic buildings due to the bombing in the Second World War. I would beg anyone who has any control over the future of the Lord Line building, to save it for the sake of the city”.

He feels it could be put to better use, saying “Now is the time to make it a hotel. If you stay in a brand hotel, you could be in any city in the world. However, if you stayed in the Lord Line, it would be an experience you could associate directly with Hull.”

    The Lord Line Building would make a fantastic maritime museum, on the ground and 1st floors, and a restaurant over looking the Humber. Artist studios and social housing above
