Moortown Corner Leeds
Since the first floor Grosvenor Casino closed in 2009 the well know Moortown Corner building has remained empty, despite efforts to let the space for other leisure uses including a restaurant. The proposed redevelopment will deliver a mixture of luxury apartments in a well sort after area of Leeds.
The existing first floor will be converted into four 2 bedroom, a single 1 bedroom and four duplex apartments. The second floor will provide a further four 2 bedroom apartments. The scheme uses clever architectural solutions such as oriel windows and recessed balconies to deal with complex privacy issues on this tight urban site. The scheme will also involve almost entirely rebuilding the rear section of the building in new blue engineering brick which allows the new and old to be clearly differentiated, while the front elevations will be cleaned and repaired.
The project received planning consent in June 2012 and construction is currently underway.
