The Library, Leeds

We have applied for planning permission to turn the Grade II listed building on Cardigan Road that was Burley Library into a co-working space, and to also build a contemporary block of 60 co-living apartments behind it. A growing demand exists for co-living amongst young professionals, and this building is perfectly located to act as a natural extension of our proven IconInc student accommodation brand, for those who are not yet ready to move on from the freedoms and adventures of their student days. This new venture will mix the old with the new as original features such as brick, ironworks and windows from the library, which opened in 1926, will be retained and even the old bookshelves will be re-used. This contrasts the modern features such as brand new glazed winter garden balconies.
