Howells goes up 18 storeys with new Bradford tower proposals - image

Glenn Howells Architects has submitted its redesigned Citygate project in Bradford - which now features a 38-storey residential tower - for planning.

The revised scheme is significantly taller than the original 20-storey design, unveiled this time last year (Glenn Howells unveils Bradford regeneration proposals), for competition-winning developer Asquith Properties.

The £150 million mixed-use development will stand on the site of the now-demolished 1960s Reyner House complex in Manchester Road and will create 729 new homes - most of which will be 'luxury' apartments.

Two storeys of retail space will be housed in the tower's lower floors and there are also plans for two basement parking levels.

Also included in the 21,000m2 proposals, which will be built in four phases, are a 116-bedroom hotel, a 1,000-person capacity banqueting hall and new footpaths, cycleways and public spaces.

Work is expected to start on site 'within the year' and construction is due to complete in December 2012.
