Buyer sought for historic city landmark

The Grade II listed Oxford Place Mission, in Leeds city centre’s Civic Quarter, is on the market.

Lambert Smith Hampton (LSH) has been instructed to find a buyer for the prominent property.

With history dating back to the early 1800s, the former chapel extends to over 33,000 sq ft. It is located on Westgate, next to Leeds Town Hall.

Planning consent has been granted for two different schemes, providing a boutique hotel of 70 rooms and 80 rooms, respectively and an increased floor area of over 40,000 sq ft.

Other uses such as residential, education, health, and offices may be suitable, subject to planning.

Richard Corby, director & head of Leeds Office at Lambert Smith Hampton, said: “We are excited to be marketing this outstanding opportunity to acquire a striking, large and historic city centre asset with significant redevelopment potential.

“The regeneration of Oxford Place provides the opportunity to deliver a scheme of huge social and economic benefit to both Leeds city centre and the public realm.”
