Bradford high rise scheme approved

The Beehive scheme which has been around the planning department for around two years has finally reached approval by the city planners.

This development promises to add a striking iconic structure to the western gateway into Bradford City Centre, and will boost the urban density in the immediate vicinity of the city University.

The scheme will be developed in phases, and will include 517 studio, one and two bedroom apartments with some car parking, and approximately 3,000 sq m of retail and commercial space when the scheme completes by the anticipated date of early 2011.

Architects, Brewster Bye, have gone for a "clean and crisp, modern and contemporary" design, with sharp angular lines and reflective materials. They have worked alongside Bradford City Council's planners to deliver an acceptable scheme, as a result the planners have welcomed this development which fits in one of four key areas identified for city centre regeneration.

The Beehive is one of a small number of high rise proposals that are starting to emerge in Bradford, any of which would help to boost the image of Bradford which has received a fair amount of criticism recently for the number of stalled projects in the city along with a generally unambitious reconstruction programme up to date, these schemes will go some way to addressing those criticisms.
