TODD Architects ‘Bradford City Centre Mixed Use Development’ Wins Yorkshire Property Award
TODD Architects mixed use office and hotel scheme at Southgate in Bradford has won the category for Best Commercial Development at the Yorkshire Property Awards.
The ceremony, organized by the Variety Club, was held at the Rudding Park Hotel, Harrogate on 5 May. The Best Commercial Development category was sponsored by Land Securities.
The scheme developed by McAleer & Rushe, who also acted as contractor, is located on a prominent city site and has regenerated a previously derelict area fronting onto one of the main squares and the Town Hall.
It comprises a 117,003 sq ft office building, which was pre–let, and purpose designed for one of Bradford’s leading employers, Provident Financial Plc and a 200–bedroom Jurys Inn hotel.
The building was completed within budget in just 18 months and includes an impressive splayed corner at the main junction as well as York stone and large amounts of glazing, particularly at street level.
Todd Architects managing director, Paul Crowe said:
‘We are very delighted to have received this prestigious award and would like to thank the Variety Club, the judges and the award sponsor Land Securities. We would also like to acknowledge McAleer & Rushe for their collaborative approach to this project.
‘This mixed use scheme is a vibrant catalyst to the regeneration of the city of Bradford and demonstrates not just value for money but how clear thinking in terms of design and functionality engenders sound commercial benefit.’
