BLOCK BOOKING FOR CAREY JONES
This mixed-use block (to the right of the image above), which has just started on site, will become the final piece in the £200 million regeneration of Clarence Dock, Leeds. Dubbed Block H, the scheme on the River Aire, south of the city centre, has been drawn up by three different architects. Carey Jones, which has masterplanned the overhaul of the entire 6ha site with Leeds City Council, is designing the main residential, retail and office space. This nine-storey unit will house 120 flats and will be clad in Portland stone and copper. The other elements in the £35 million development include a hotel by Young and Gault and a new exhibition hall for Royal Armouries International by DLA Architects. The scheme is due for completion in 2007.
