Tower Works Wins Best Altered Building at Leeds Architecture Awards
The iconic Tower Works has won Best Altered Building at Leeds Architecture Awards. The category focused on a new use for an existing building and the judges thought Tower Works demonstrated very careful creative conservation of a historic and significant building. Designed by Bauman Lyons Architects Ltd for the Homes & Communities Agency, and managed and let by Creative Space Management, it has proved popular with occupiers.
The building was 50% pre-let by Creative Space Management prior to completion and reached 100% occupancy within the first year of operation with a total of 21 businesses taking space. There is now a waiting list for larger offices within the scheme which is hoped will trigger further development.
