The scheme, which lies in one of the four 'neighbourhood' petals earmarked by Will Alsop as part of his ambitious masterplan for the West Yorkshire city, had already secured planning permission from the local authority back in April (Robinson's Bradford scheme finally wins go-ahead).
After being unveiled, the proposals were significantly reworked and reduced in height and will now feature two smaller towers of 16 and 24 storeys, as well as a covered winter garden with cafés, bars and exhibition areas to provide a year-round leisure facility.
Harold Robinson, director of consortium Bradford Channel Limited, said:'We are now under starter's orders and have the all-clear to move forward.
'After years of negotiations and planning it is a very exciting time for us and for the city of Bradford.'
Work is expected to start on site next year.
