Large Leeds Construction Project Gets Underway


The redevelopment of The Majestic building in Leeds city centre has started, with the £40 million project expected to take around 18 months to complete.


When it’s finished next year, it will offer 66,000 sq ft of workspace, with real estate director at property investment firm Rushbond Mark Finch stating that The Majestic will “provide a stage for modern, forward-thinking, imaginative and ambitious businesses who are seeking a distinctive landmark presence at the heart of the Leeds city region”.


The historic building’s original exterior will be restored, behind which will stand the new seven-floor property.


A three-storey atrium-style entrance and terraces on the fourth and fifth floors are part of the plans.


The Yorkshire Evening Post explained that The Majestic was originally opened as a cinema and restaurant-cum-ballroom in the early 1920s. However, in the 1980s it became a bingo hall, and was then converted into a nightclub in the 1990s.


In 2006, the club closed and the building was sold to Rushbond. However, in 2014 a large fire caused substantial damage to the landmark.   


Rushbond has announced that the building will be available to be rented by a single tenant, or the space can be divided between multiple occupants, depending on demand.


This is one of many construction projects being undertaken in Leeds at present, with two new housing schemes breaking ground last month with the intention to have the new homes across the two sites completed within 35 weeks.
