East Street was once home to Leeds College of Building in the thriving community close to the heart of Leeds City Centre, and is a sought after area for high end apartments.
Client: Fortis Developments Ltd
Value: £3.2 million
Status: Start on site August 2015
Units: 39 – Split Mix 1, 2 & 3 Bed Apartments
DMS Architecture was appointed by a developer client in May 2014 for full architectural services for the redevelopment of the site for residential use. Planning was granted in December 2014 to convert the existing building into 39 residential apartments including a two storey modern contemporary rooftop extension and partial demolition of the existing building.
EXISTING FACADES TO BE RETAINED
The existing facades being retained to East Street and Richmond Street boast original art deco style frontage, which is complemented by the contemporary roof top extension. Close collaboration with the Planning and Conservation Officers at Leeds City Council at the pre-application stage ensured planning permission was granted with few issues. The proposal also includes on site car parking and rooftop amenity spaces
