Plans for a new city centre apartment complex on Wellington Street in Leeds have progressed as the partial demolition of Churchill House has been recommended for conditional approval.
The residential complex, which would be situated at the site of the grade II-listed office building, is set to include 22 apartments and a ground floor restaurant and cafe. The plans, drawn by Think Architecture + Design, also detail a seven-storey extension to the rear of Churchill House.
Head of agency at our Leeds office, Richard Dunn, commented, “The previous occupiers of Churchill House, Thompson Solicitors, moved in March 2016 to a refurbished 7,250 sq ft suite at Coverdale House. Since relocating them, the office building has remained vacant.”
An objection by Historic England means the application, which has been submitted by Barton Willmore on behalf of owner Hallborough Properties, will now be referred to government for a final decision.
