Round Foundry, Leeds
This award winning development, the birthplace of the industrial revolution in Leeds, won the RICS award for International Regeneration Project of the Year in 2005 – testament to the quality of design and construction adopted by our team. The Round Foundry was originally built by Matthew Murray in the 18th century and is the oldest remaining specialist engineering works in the world. The site was developed by our CTP St James joint venture converting and adapting the existing structures sensitively, with modern elements to create an urban village just a few minutes walk from Leeds train station.
The village is made up of 7,000 m² of offices together with apartments, two pubs, two restaurants, a juice bar, deli, café, newsagent and a small art gallery. The most recent phase was completed in 2008 and attracted a mix of tenants including an architects' practice, Welcome to Yorkshire (The Yorkshire Tourist Board) and a barristers chambers.
Phase 1 benefited from various grants from Yorkshire Forward whilst Phase 2 was the beneficiary of ERDF assistance.COMPLETION YEAR: 2008
