In brief

36 Barr Street is to be renovated and converted to deliver a shared living development, complete with communal living and workspace facilities.

Providing 26 units over three floors with mezzanine loft-style apartments & single-storey studios, the heritage building is to be thoroughly renovated and will become an exemplar of what the shared living concept can represent.

Aimed at the young, single working professional, 36 Barr Street will deliver dining, lounges, workspaces, games & cinema room, fitness & wellbeing areas; high-quality communal spaces in the form of a chilled-out roof terrace, and a curated offer of social and cultural events.

Externally, the building will be jazzed up and all brickwork restored & repointed; along with the installation of new windows, roof & a teal painted facade (set for new colour!). 

Zero car parking is included here, however, 100% cycling provision will be allocated.

The conversion of Bradford Works will begin in early 2022 and is expected to be ready for its first residents within 12 months.
