Leeds city centre is changing – and nowhere is feeling the benefit more than Granary Wharf.
Sitting by the water on a sunny day, it’s hard to believe you’re actually a stone’s throw from the train station and slap bang in the middle of the city.
ISIS Waterside Regeneration two apartment blocks on Granary Wharf are also proving popular, making this one of the most sought after addresses in town.
Waterman’s Place, which sits opposite the Mint Hotel, is almost completely sold out – there’s only 29 left, so you’ll have to be quick if you want one. Prices for a one-bedroom start at £128,000, and two-bedroom apartments start at £169,000.
Candle House is also attracting a bit of attention too – almost a third have already sold. The circular apartment block is an eye-catcher, but the best bit is the fact that there are only eight apartments on each floor, so you won’t be crammed in.
The roof terrace is pretty impressive too, if you want to sunbathe 21 storeys up, looking out across the city. The views are just breathtaking and you get to use the sheds that are up there plus the hammocks and beanbags. Prices at Candle House start at just £128,000 for a one-bedrrom and £178,000 for a two-bedroom, and ISIS also runs a Loan2Own shared equity scheme, which sees the developer stump up 20 per cent of the purchase price to use towards the deposit.
Granary Wharf also has a healthy mix of independent businesses, like coffee shop Out of the Woods, Brazilian steak house Fazenda, local bar The Hop and Wasabi sushi bar.
You’re also a short walk to the Cross Keys and the Midnight Bell, two of the best gastropubs in the city. Confidential reviewed the Cross Keys here.
With a new train station entrance set to be built in 2012, Granary Wharf is going to be even more popular, so it’s probably wise to get in there before everybody else does.
See you on the roof terrace.
