Developers have revealed the first image of what the finished Stonebridge Mills development in Farnley will look like.
The £25 million project, which is called Stonebridge Beck, includes 82 new homes as well as the regeneration of the grade II listed and long-derelict former woollen mill buildings and cottages, which is creating a further 30 homes.
The former industrial buildings are off Stonebridge Lane, off Farnley Ring Road, and are well known for their historic chimney and water tower, which are being retained.
The 10-acre site includes the former mill pond as well as a new specially commissioned piece of public art to be situated at the entrance to the development, reflecting the building’s industrial heritage.
Jonathan Maud, on behalf of joint developers Rushbond and Advent Developments, said:
“We have worked hard to design a thoughtful and sympathetic regeneration of this long-derelict and much-loved Leeds landmark. We know from our extensive consultations that the community are excited to see this project commence and we are committed to delivering a really high-quality scheme.”
Adrian Dobson, Managing Director from Caddick Construction said:
“We are delighted to have started work on Stonebridge Mills and are helping to bring this site and historic buildings back to life as well as providing much-needed housing for the Farnley area.
“The site’s regeneration will also enable the green corridor along the Farnley Beck to be extended and run through the development which will be a huge bonus for the local community.”
Developers say they have already received strong interest from home buyers. The site includes a collection of conversion and new build homes, ranging from two to five bedrooms.
In February, WLD featured nine photographs highlighting how work was progressing on the site.
