Office facelift gains council approval
ESTATE AGENTS Savills has secured full planning approval from Leeds City Council on a proposal to expand and modernise a city centre office building.
Designed by Abbey Hanson Rowe, 6- 7 Park Row was purposebuilt in the early 1970s as the regional headquarters for Lloyds Banking Group and comprises a ten- storey office building located at the junction of Park Row and Bond Street, close to Trinity Leeds Shopping Centre and Leeds train station.
The comprehensive refurbishment of the building will create 553 sq m of additional floorspace.
The upper floors of the building will be refurbished to provide Grade A standard office accommodation, with the ground floor being part converted to a restaurant.
The lower basement of the building has also secured consent for a range of flexible uses.
