Repurposing a previous department store

The redundant retail store, Debenhams, in Leeds will be transformed into a mixed-use scheme. We worked with the owner on plans to provide a flexible commercial space featuring 3 units totalling 45,000 sq ft, 124 student beds and 118 student apartments.

The plans sought to incorporate four communal areas and a “courtyard wellness garden”, which will be constructed within the building. The project aimed to preserve the building’s 1930s architectural appearance whilst adding a fifth floor, plus retail space in the basement, ground and first floors of the building.

There was a strong focus on sustainability by achieving a high BREEAM score.

Our Role

Upon receiving consent, Orchard Street decided to sell the site. Stace remained involved and provided project management services until the completion of the sale.
