Property description


The property is located with good frontage to East Parade, close to its junction with Leeds Road (A647) on the periphery of Little Germany Conservation Area, just inside the Shipley Airedale Road/Inner Ring Road (A650) within Bradford City Centre. The site is close to the well-known Gatehaus Development, near to Bradford Playhouse and a number of office and restaurant/retail occupiers.

Nearby to the west is the redevelopment of the City Centre and the proposed Broadway Shopping Centre. We understand that it is likely that completion and opening of the centre will take place in November 2015 and the area nearby on Leeds Road is to be occupied by a new and very substantial Debenhams department store. The Leisure Exchange is nearby to the south, and this includes a hotel, multi-screen cinema, bowling alley, restaurants etc. Within the immediate vicinity is Premier Inn and Bradford County Court.


The property comprises a development site extending to approximately 0.09 hectares (0.214 acres). It is currently used as a surfaced car park. The site has substantial frontage to East Parade. There are currently no buildings on the site.


The site is currently occupied as a car park. The site last benefitted from a planning consent (Application No. 07/01980/ful) granted on the 19th June 2007 for the construction of a mixed use residential and A3 leisure development comprising a part 7 and part 8-storey block.

The consented scheme provides for 2 commercial units on the ground floor, 4 commercial units at first floor, 10 x 1-bedroom and 4 x 2-bedroom apartments on the second to sixth floors and 4 x 1-bedroom and 2 x 2-bedroom apartments on the seventh floor.

We understand that an application to vary this agreement was submitted but never resolved, to turn the first floor commercial units into 10 x 1-bedroom and 4 x 2-bedroom apartments.

Initial discussions with the Local Planning Authority suggest that there is no reason why such a consent should not be reinstated.

The total gross internal area of the completed development extended to approximately 4,452 sq. M. (47,922 sq. Ft.).

Further information is available if required.

2 x manual drive-in loading
Doors 51.56 sq. M. (555 sq. Ft.)
