Work to transform a landmark Grade II listed former office building in Leeds city centre into 26, one and two bedroom apartments is nearing completion following a significant investment by private developer Khalsmith.
Built in 1911, Pearl Chambers on The Headrow has four storeys and plenty of historic and characterful detailing throughout the building. It used to be known as the Pearl Assurance Building and has a statue of the life insurance company’s President and Founder, Patrick James Foley high up on the building. The work is due to complete in the next couple of weeks, with a selection of apartments available for sale now.
It’s one of those buildings in Leeds everyone knows. In a really central location and steeped in history, it’s perfect for residential use. The developer has worked really hard to retain as many of the character features as possible, restoring the original windows, retaining the ceiling heights and the original surround which means that all of the apartments have their own individual feel.
Inside the specification is to a very high standard, and combined with the building’s excellent location close to the railway station and all the city centre’s main leisure and retail offerings, this development has plenty of appeal and especially because very individual schemes in the heart of the city centre are few and far between these days..
A number of apartments have already sold off plan, and there are currently a handful of two bedroom homes available ranging in price from £210,000 to £350,000.
Khalsmith has previously converted other buildings in Leeds city centre into successful residential schemes including 42 Park Place which proved really popular with investors and owner-occupiers.
