New Lease Of Life For Historic Leeds Mill Complex

An award-winning development company has announced that it has plans in place for an ambitious new housing development in west Leeds, transforming a historic mill complex in the area that will put it right at the very heart of the development.

Rushbond has brought the plans for a garden village scheme forward, a scheme that will include 126 new and converted homes on the vacant site. Stonebridge Mills is just one of a number of such complexes in the city that are considered to be at risk, with parts of it dating way back to 18056. Sadly, some of the buildings have been left empty for more than 20 years – so it seems that now is the perfect time for redevelopment of some kind.

One of the biggest features included in the plans are extensive public spaces, with a new park running along the Wortley Beck, extensive gardens for the new-build properties and a heritage garden zone created alongside the Mills. Some 28 character homes would be built in the historic buildings, as well as 98 contemporary-designed homes.

Rushbond’s Richard Baker commented on the news, saying: “Stonebridge Mills is steeped in history and once played an active and vibrant role in the local community.  It is sad that the site has been unused for so many years, but many of the key features of the original Mills remain and it has huge potential to be given that vibrancy again, this time as a place to live.

“Our experience in developing new homes in Wortley demonstrates that there is a huge pent up demand for high quality realistically priced design-led homes on characterful sites. “

Of course, this isn’t the only project that the company is involved in and Rushbond is also doing work on a city centre exclusive apartment development – which has just been released for sale. The 53 Great George Street development is made up of three two-bedroom apartments and a one-bed apartment with an impressive double height vaulted ceiling in the lounge.

The company’s Mark Finch explained that the potential was clearly there for each of the four apartments to be highly unique and distinctive, with lots of stunning architectural features such as tall windows and high ceilings.
