Planning Approval Granted for Commercial Road

We are pleased to announce that Planning approval has been granted for the conversion of The Former Angel Halls of Residence into 36 studio apartments on behalf of Elite Private Residences Ltd.

The derelict 1960s building occupies a prominent position raised above Commercial Road in Leeds. It was most recently used as student accommodation and is now in a poor state of repair.

The proposals include a complete overhaul of the building’s façade with a contemporary design to give the development a fresh new identity which will encourage the regeneration of the local area. The existing stepped façade will be split into three panels, graduating from light to dark grey. Bright yellow windows will reveal an entrance canopy tying the design together. High quality interiors are proposed for the spacious studio apartments, which will be aimed at graduates and young professionals. The rear outbuildings will be demolished and replaced with 25 parking spaces, cycle storage and attractive areas of soft landscaping
