Technical Tour – Bridgewater Place, Leeds

Bridgewater Place by dayIn response to the local planning policy regarding tall buildings, the scheme was developed to signpost the rapidly emerging business activities south of the river and railway, including the now prosperous Holbeck Urban Villages, as well  as providing a much needed gateway landmark for the approaches from the M1 and M62 motorways.

Joint Venture partners, Landmark Development Projects Ltd and St James Securities Ltd, commissioned Aedas to design an integrated mixed use scheme combining office, retail, living spaces into one building. Completed in April, the building now rises 30 storeys and 106 metres above pavement level. It provides over 500,000 sq ft of accommodation including 235,000 sq ft of prime office space, 201 apartments, 20,000 sq ft of retail accommodation and 400 basement parking spaces.

Taking just over half of this spacie is Eversheds LLP who have also secured exclusive use of the sky lobbby which bridges the eight storey public Atrium at level five. Further office leases are being discussed with Ernst & Young, BDO Stoy Hayward, Operon and GHD. Parties interested in the retail spaces include Philpots, Tesco Express, Costa Coffee and Bagelnash. The residential portion has seen similar success with 100 per cent sales prior to commencement and now showing healthy returns in both letting and resale markets.

Central to the scheme is an eight storey glass fronted public atrium bounded by shops and restaurants. This primary internal space acts as both the front door for each and every building use as well as providing an effective venue for functions and presentations.

Timings: 5:30pm – approx 7:00pm followed by refreshments

This event will be hosted by Eversheds LLP in association with Landmark Development Projects and Aedas Architects.
