£50m revamp for Leeds Metropolitan University inspired by Angel of the North

£50m revamp for Leeds Metropolitan University inspired by Angel of the North

Architect Feilden Clegg Bradley have completed a £50m development for Leeds Metropolitan University, based on Woodhouse Lane in the city centre.

The work has brought 110,000 sq ft of teaching and office space to the university site.

The development included a steel alloy cladding called Cor-Ten, the same material that was used on the iconic Angel of the North. In fact this project saw the largest single use of Cor-Ten cladding in Europe.

According to Building.co.uk, Paul Houghton, development director of property group Downing, who oversaw the build, said:

“The development represents a significant achievement – this was a complex site, within a conservation area.

“Working in partnership with English Heritage, CABE and Leeds Metropolitan University we have brought about a development that is visually stunning and equips thousands of Leeds students with unrivalled teaching and accommodation facilities.”
