Yorkshire Post - Property - - FRONT PAGE -

AN ar­chi­tec­tural prac­tice that played a ma­jor part in the newlook Leeds city cen­tre has put its Leeds and Manch­ester of­fices into ad­min­stra­tion.

Carey Jones, now Careyjones Chap­man­tolcher stu­dio north, blamed the “poor eco­nomic con­di­tions in the re­gion” for the clo­sure and re­dun­dacy of 31 staff.

Founded by Gor­don Carey and Chris Jones in Leeds in 1987, the com­pany helped de­sign a num­ber of high-pro­file apart­ment schemes in­clud­ing Clarence Dock, Gra­nary Wharf and White­hall Waterfront

The firm’s London of­fice con­tin­ues to trade and the group share­hold­ers have launched a new busi­ness called Leeds Stu­dio, which will work on schemes across the North of Eng­land.
