From the Huddersfield section in the Leeds Thread, a proposed Student Accommodation mirrorin the industrial architecture of Huddersfield, particularly the immediate vicinity of the site.

Due to the development site being next to a number of listed mills the building has a traditional design and will look like an old mill. It will also be built out of locally sourced stone.

I think this is fantastic, the proposal looks great i'm really looking forward to construction starting. I'm also really happy were seeing continued development of the Firth Street/ Colne Road Development area. At the rate of development in this area the transformation from an industrial area to a residential/ office area should be complete in 5 to 10 years.

Colne Road apartments


Colne Road Student flats







I'm sure you all agree its another great looking development

Hmm. I'm pretty sure that the AC units in the windows are temporary as well.

The funny thing is that the AC units make it look even more like a pre-war NYC building. Maybe it's for the plasterers? It's been over 90 many times this summer, well above ideal curing temperatures.

It's fantastic that such craftsmanship continues in this day of age. It's paramount that such skills are preserved and passed down to and for future generations.

From NYC:


FYI: The 'Blue tint' on the windows is temporary backing that will be removed. AC units will also be removed once interior work is complete.
