I cant believe that there is so much going on in Leeds.
My favourate project has got to be Clarence House. Even though its not as tall as developments such as Criterion Place, it looks so quality. And the location is just fab.

I am a little confused over the official height of BWP - it has been mentioned here:

http://contractdataservices.co.uk/co...tion_news.html

and perhaps more tellingly here

http://www.aedas.com/news/pdfs/bridgewater.pdf

(from the architects themselves!)

that the scheme is in fact 32 storeys, which also looks about right if you count the stories from the pop-up picture on the official site:

http://www.bridgewaterplaceleeds.com

The "side" part half-let to Eversheds is 10 stories, so using the very scientific method of finger counting it looks like it might be 32!

If it is, I rather hope they put a restaurant at the top - have a meal and see for miles!

It's hard to tell, there are a lot saying 32 storeys (which would be excellant) including AEDAS themselves, but I seem to remember they only got full planning for 30.

Perhaps they are including the basement car park and a service hut on top, which are both kind of cheating. Floors are only counted from the adjacent ground level up, and must be 'habitable'.

perhaps and intrepid member or viewer of this forum has a contact at Aedas and can clarify?

whatever - but we definitely need some public access at the top of these tall towers going up. why should the fantastic view be reserved for the very rich? a decent restaurant and bar is what we want!

i remember having a beer on the 108th floor of the WTC and thinking 'kinell, it's high! but what a view!

Good summary of high rises in Leeds, this could be stickified as a project round up.
The diagram is brilliant, leeds skyline is going to be huge if everything goes ahead I wouldn't mind seeing some of the renders of these buildings as well.

great stuff rob.
we also need threads on every leeds development as and when it starts. its only when you get these up and running the post count will start to soar.
leeds does have a shit skyline right now, but looking at things im realising it wont do in a few years time. its definitely a happening place.

I don't think it matters how high it is, as long as its high enough. 30/32 isnt that much difference. As long as its nice and tall, and with Criterion Place, Globe Road and the other towers proposed, the skyline will complement BWP greatly.

btw, haven't heard much about Criterion Place.Will Criterion Place 1 be the tallest tower in the north when its built, instead of BWP? Is approved a more advanced stage than proposed?

Bridgewater Place wont ever be the tallest tower in the North because Beetham in Manchester is rising ahead of BWP. Wether Criterion Place will be the tallest is an interesting point but remember that Liverpool have a 48-storey tower and a 50-storey tower planned. Then of course theres Greengate...

I'm not sure, but it was in the 'Consruction News' a couple of weeks ago under the 'early planning' section, for £154 million.

If it's stickified, I can work on it, adding pictures and heights etc to the list, and keeping it up to date.

Yep... I like this idea too...stick this at the top and add a map then it'll be really helpful.

And if you don't mind me suggesting it.. you should close this after starting another new thread called " Official Leeds Building List " which should be stuck

And re-post your information in 5 posts to make it easier to see the catagories and split split the list into shorter clumps...so...

1... Existing major commercial buildings in the City Centre, (8 floors and above).
(Excluding all council residential blocks: intention to remove in due course)


2...Major city centre schemes under construction:-


3...Major proposals in the city centre include :-

4....TOTAL

5... City map


... and then go back and add links to the relevant threads on this forum to make this like an index....that's if other folk agree.

I've updated the under construction bit with Wellington Plaza, we are now on 14 cranes up in the city.

When Gothic tells me he will stickify it, I will copy this lot into a new 'official buildings, construction and proposals' thread. I will keep adding new thumbnail pictures too, they are only 4kB each, so there shouldn't be any problem for people with slower internet connections viewing this.
