Hume House - student resi | 126m | 40 fl | Cancelled

Plans to be discussed for 40 storey student tower, on the land of Hume House.

Not sure how I feel about another student block there, but will certainly add to the cluster!

I like the elevations and general design (quite art deco!), but I guess we'll have to wait and more detailed renders/ cladding materials etc

Interesting! I note that it's being designed by Nick Brown Architects (brownie point) and that it's currently proposed to be clad in gritstone (another brownie point).

The building is also heavily influenced by the desire to obscure views of
the clv tower from Briggate as far as possible.
Cheeky but love it! Hopefully clv tower is obscured by something better and not a similar value engineered turd.

Hume House redevelopment-student residential | 126m | 40 fl | Pre-app proposal

Application by: Knightsbridge Capital (Leeds) Ltd
Architects: Nick Brown
Wind consultant: WSP

(PREAPP/16/00428) http://democracy.leeds.gov.uk/docume...APP1600428.pdf

Certainly a nice surprise, the building profile looks amazingly slim, and subject to at least reasonable cladding this could look pretty impressive on the skyline. Certainly if Bridge Street goes ahead as planned, and with Skyplaza and other shorter towers already in close proximity, the skyline and general city impression at the Arena quarter is going to be very impressive around there.

Nick Brown Architects are coming up with some fantastic designs in Leeds.

Quick mock up of what the view up Briggate might look like. Hurrah for the disappearance of Opal!

Looks impressive! Very slick! With good quality cladding, I honestly believe it could resemble a small-scale Manhattan skyscraper!

It does look rather NewYork-ish, which I think has a stylish look to it.

yeah, it looks spectacular like a new New York style skinny scraper. Strange only yesterday i was thinking how much a couple of thin tall buildings would transform the weatherspoons/casino building area when walking around there and now this. I remember saying years ago that a tall building there would block out Opal. I bet Lad 2011 is pleased for one as he's stated that he can't stand Hume house many times.

All we need is one more tall building on the stick or twist site (behind wade house on the picture above) and we will have a skyline that is without a doubt unbeatable outside London.

We are also forgetting the student proposal just across the road at St Albans Place which was 18 stories I seem to remember.

I would imagine we'll see imminent full planning applications for Bridge Street and the Yorkshire Post Site too!
