Granary Wharf, an area which has a place in the history of Leeds as the engine room of the city during the Industrial Revolution, is now a multi-award winning, established canal side community. Waterside Places won planning consent for the site in 2006, and over four years transformed what was a derelict car park, into a new destination featuring a contemporary selection of apartments, commercial spaces and a revitalised waterside.
The first of the area’s now award-winning residential developments, the eye-catching copper-clad Waterman’s Place, was completed early 2009 and fully occupied by the end of 2012. The cylindrical Candle House was completed in 2010 and is popular with a range of purchasers, from first time buyers to second steppers and down-sizers. Each of the residential buildings has its own communal terrace garden, offering stunning views across the city, the waterfront and the Yorkshire Dales beyond.
As with all Waterside Places projects, connectivity was key to the regeneration process, and as part of the development a new walkway, Waterman’s Bridge, was created, which provides another route from the Wharf to the city centre. In 2016 a new Southern Entrance to Leeds train station opened at Granary Wharf, further establishing the area as an essential link through from the heart of Leeds to the burgeoning creative business district south of the city centre.
New commercial units were also created in the vacant railway arches and on the ground floor of the residential buildings. These unique spaces are now home to a thriving community of independent bars, cafes and restaurants which complement the contemporary hotel DoubleTree by Hilton, which sits between the two residential blocks and offers the 13th Floor SkyLounge bar.
