Residential development designed by Riverside Design Studio Architects and Engineers for our client, developer, Robinson Developments now nears build completion.

128 Wetherby Road, Leeds has really taken shape over the summer and is due to be completed next month, with properties handed over to new home owners.

A four unit scheme, with a mixture of refurbishment and new build, has been three years in the making, including a carefully negotiated planning process with the Local Authority to obtain the exacting permission required by the client.

A high level of fit out specification in the homes as well as Landscape Architect designed external areas leads to a very prestigious architecturally designed development.

Planning permission and listed building consent has been granted to our proposals to bring a vacant Bradford city centre building back to life. The prominent Grade II listed corner block on Darley Street, opposite the Kirkgate Centre, has been empty for some time and permission has now been given for its conversion to 9 apartments with a new modern residential entrance. As part of the plans for the building the ground floor retail units are to be refurbished with new shopfronts including bespoke interior design.


The original building was constructed in 1875-6 and is believed to have once been home to one of the first Bettys Cafe Tea Rooms in the 1920’s.


The permissions follow on from our successful proposals for the conversion of a Grade II listed buildings in the Little Germany area of Bradford last year.
