... As fire also hits David Morley's Lister Mills

  • Comment
Fire crews were rushed to David Morley Architects' (DMA) Lister Mills scheme in Bradford after a blaze broke out at the Urban Splash construction site late last Friday night.

A spokesman for Urban Splash confirmed that a fire had been reported at the Velvet Mills site - part of the overhaul of the Grade II*-listed 1870s mill complex in Manningham.

The spokesman said: 'The fire occurred in part of the central core, on a section of the Velvet Mills roof which is not part of the works. It was put out pretty soon after it was reported.

'At this stage we don't know what the damage is,' the spokesman added.

DMA, which at the time of writing was not available for comment, was given the go-ahead for its unusual roof-top scheme (pictured) last summer (Morley goes up on the roof at Lister Mills).

Urban Splash's £100 million redevelopment of Lister Mills - once the largest silk mill in the world - includes the delivery of around 600 apartments, commercial, retail and leisure space, a community centre and a new public realm.
