Distinctive new apartments released for sale in Leeds city centre's conservation area
Work is underway on Leeds city centre’s latest and most exclusive apartment development, which has just been released for sale and consists of four individually designed homes in the heart of Great George Street’s Conservation Area.
The development, known as 53 Great George Street, consists of three stunning two-bedroom apartments, as well as a one-bedroom apartment which boasts an impressive double height vaulted ceiling in the lounge. Each property is unique and is being finished to an exceptional standard.
The scheme is being developed by award-winning development company Rushbond, which is currently involved with many of the City’s most iconic and recognisable buildings including the redevelopment of The Majestic, the revitalisation of The Corn Exchange and the re-creation of the First White Cloth Hall. The Great George Street project continues the company’s tradition of investing in both new build and character buildings to create homes right in the heart of city centres, such as at Brewery Wharf and Crispin Lofts in Leeds, St Leonard’s Place in York and, most recently, The Cotton Mill in Skipton town centre.
Mark Finch from Rushbond, says: “This development sits in a highly prominent position on Great George Street, overlooking the original Grade I listed Leeds General Infirmary building and the historic Grade II listed St George’s Church. The street’s Conservation Area status has helped make it a really unique environment in Leeds with a village feel, with some great independent cafes, bars, restaurants and shops. Yet it’s still less than a two-minute walk to Millennium Square.
“We saw the potential for each apartment to be very distinctive and unique. Full of interesting architectural features, with high ceilings and tall windows, two of the apartments incorporate attractive duplex layouts that span the second and third floors of the building. All this combines to create a very special development that really stands out from the crowd.”
53 Great George Street is being marketed by Leeds city living specialist Morgans. The firm’s managing director, Jonathan Morgan, says: “Individually designed apartments that are full of character will always attract lots of interest from discerning buyers who want a home that is different to anything else. Rushbond’s attention to detail and the company’s experience on other highly successful residential projects will undoubtedly make the apartments within 53 Great George Street some of the city centre’s most sought after.”
