A local authority planning panel will discuss the proposals for City House at a meeting on Thursday.
Dating back to the 1960s and designed by crooked architect John Poulson, the no-frills city centre tower block is widely regarded as one of the least attractive features of the Leeds skyline.
But its owner, property company Bruntwood, sees a bright future for the 14-storey building, which stands next to Leeds City Station.
If the planning application being considered at Thursdays meeting gets the green light, City House's exterior would be re-clad with stylish glazing.
