Project Description

CJCT won a competition to redevelop and restore the Listed North Concourse of Leeds station - considered by the Railway Heritage Trust to be the most important piece of Art Deco railway architecture in the Country. The project also included redeveloping the adjacent railway sheds, the creation of a new office building (Princes Exchange), new piazza, multi-storey car park and the liberation of the riverside area.
CJCT obtained Planning and Listed Building Consent for the restoration and extension of the building. The refurbishment and design created a light and airy concourse area with new retail and leisure amenities as well as new entrances to the station. Carey Jones Chapman Tolcher also relocated the stations short stay carpark and drop off area to the rear of the station - reducing congestion, allowing easier access for public transport.
