Plans to transform an empty West Leeds office block into flats have been withdrawn by developers, less than a month after they were first submitted.

Bradshaw House, on Waterloo Lane in Bramley, has been vacant for some time, with efforts to find new tenants having failed.

Applicants Bridge-It Enterprises, who bought the property last year, had submitted plans to convert the building into 27 residential apartments. No reason for withdrawing the plans has been given and the applicant could submit fresh proposals for the building in the future.

In a planning statement, the developers had said: “The building is currently vacant office space and has been actively marketed, with no future users coming forward to either rent or buy the building.

“It is proposed to change the use of the building to form 27 residential apartments over the existing two storeys with the benefit of a roof conversion and re-purposing the lower ground floor.”

The statement added that the development would be in a “sustainable location within easy walking distance of all amenities and excellent transport facilities to the city centre.”

The proposals and documentation can be read in full here.


  1. its a shame it could not be used as a retail or maybe some offices, such as a legal firm, or nursery, especially with parking and space at the rear.
