Plans for former mill brought forward

Plans to redevelop one of Bradford’s most iconic buildings has taken another step forward.

Conditioning House, which stands on land between Canal Road and Forster Square Retail Park, was bought by developer, the Priestley Group, a year ago, and proposals have been submitted to Bradford Council for a residential conversion.

The former textile mill has been derelict for nigh-on 30 years.  It is Grade 2 listed, and was built in 1902.  Priestley want to create 130 one and two-bed apartments, which would be complemented with offices, a gym and cafe. The scheme is expected to take about 18 months and will cost about £8.5 million.

The site has had several owners since it became empty in the 1980s, the last being Caddick Developments.  Priestley hope to secure planning approval by December. The company has a joint venture partner for the development, Singapore-based Muniment, which provides financial investment.
