£1m re-development of law firm’s former head office completes
The £1m restoration of a Grade Two listed building in Leeds city centre has completed, turning a law firm’s former head office into apartments.
Priestley Construction, a Leeds-based contractor which specialises in the refurbishment of historic buildings, has transformed Hanover House, the previous head office of Blacks Solicitors LLP, into ten luxurious apartments. Conservation standards had been set by the local authority and English Heritage over the project.
Nathan Priestley, chief executive officer of the Priestley Group, said: “It’s always an honour to be entrusted with bringing a historic building back to its former glory. We have a raft of experience in transforming properties of this nature into much-needed, high quality apartments.
“With this project, Priestley Construction has created 10 high-specification, luxury two bedroom apartments that were carefully crafted to complement the heritage status of the Grade II listed building.”
Floorboards and windows have been restored, integrating the authentic structures with modern technology including advanced music and lighting programmes, to create contemporary living spaces.
Located on Clarendon Road, the building sold to a private buy-to-let investor for an undisclosed sum.
Priestley Construction carried out the renovation work on behalf of its sister business, Priestley Homes.
