Awards for Park Row prop­erty

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

KEN­NETH Hodg­son House, the restora­tion project named in mem­ory of the founder of West­court Prop­er­ties and late fa­ther of the com­pany’s di­rec­tor, Tim Hodg­son, has re­ceived praise at the an­nual Leeds Ar­chi­tec­ture awards.

The Park Row build­ing scooped an award for spe­cial light­ing and picked up a com­men­da­tion in the Best Con­served Build­ing cat­e­gory.

Tim says: “This is the very first award West­court has ever en­tered, so to get two men­tions for a project which is close to my heart is fan­tas­tic. The ex­ten­sive six-month restora­tion in 2013 was cer­tainly tax­ing but more­over ex­cep­tion­ally re­ward­ing. Re­tain­ing the his­toric char­ac­ter was of great im­por­tance.”
