Welcome to No. 1 Harewood Street. An exclusive development of just 9 apartments, this boutique luxury residential scheme offers arguably the highest specification units in the whole of Leeds.
First time buyers and owner occupiers have the rare opportunity to own a piece of Leeds history. No. 1 Harewood Street is a Grade II-listed building first constructed in the early 1900s. Its past reflects the commercial heritage of Leeds, having first been used by the Bradford Bank Ltd, before becoming the home of a number of commercial enterprises.
Now, this impressive building with its original red-brick façade has become one of the most sought-after places to live in all of Leeds.
No. 1 Harewood Street sits in an enviable city centre location. Situated in the up-market LS2 postcode, The Ivy is directly opposite and can be seen from the exceptionally large, arched apartment windows. The fashionable shopping district of Victoria Gate – with luxury brands such as Louis Vuitton and Vivienne Westwood – is also situated across from the building.
The spectacular city views comprise the other pieces of Leeds heritage that surround No. 1 Harewood Street. Depending on the aspect, No. 1 Harewood Street looks over Kirkgate Market, which was constructed in 1875, and the 1902 Coronation Buildings.
The transformation of No. 1 Harewood Street into luxury residential units is complete, so any prospective purchasers can view the finished apartments and can expect to move in quickly.
Thanks to its central location and outstanding specification, the units here should be particularly appealing to any city-dweller looking to live amongst the hustle and bustle of the city centre.

No.1 Harewood Street is situated in the heart of the city centre surrounded by the city's various thriving shops, restaurants, and bars. The area around this development creates the perfect combination of past and present which perfectly reflects No.1 Harewood Street itself.
The location of this development is unrivalled in every sense and allows you to truly experience everything that Leeds has to offer. Sitting adjacent to No.1 Harewood Street is the upmarket shopping district of the Victoria Quarter. The area is the home of the thriving Victoria gate Shopping Centre, which boasts an abundance of major retail outlets and brands such as Harvey Nichols, Mulberry, and the Leeds John Lewis flagship store.
Also in close proximity are the historic Grand Shopping Arcades of Leeds and Leeds Corn Exchange, both of which offer boutique shopping, dining, and leisure experiences.

Furthermore, The major transport hub that is Leeds railway station is just a short 5-minute walk away. From there, you will be able to take a direct train to the wider Leeds region as well as to many of the UK's major cities, including London, Manchester and Birmingham.
Shopping in Leeds is quite simply off the scale. The high streets and shopping malls are filled with a wide variety of some of the best retailers…and all are within metres of each other.
The retail experience in Leeds was already quite overwhelming but the city went up a notch a couple of years ago when the modern Trinity Leeds shopping centre opened with occupants ranging from Apple to Victoria’s Secret.
In contrast to the more modern shopping experience, Leeds also has some historical shopping arcades, of which are home to the likes of Louis Vuitton and Harvey Nichols.
More recently, Leeds opened its second large indoor shopping centre, known as the visually impressive Victoria Gate. When it comes to shopping here, you won’t know where to start.
Opening in 2016, the £165million Victoria Gate Shopping Centre created a new covered retail experience in the Grade II-listed Victoria Quarter. The area is known as the ‘Knightsbridge of the North’ due to the wealth of luxury brands that have stores here.
The new Victoria Gate Shopping Centre is home to major names such as John Lewis & Partners, a number of eateries, a large multi-storey car park, a casino, and a public space at Templar Square. It is finished with a stunning stained glass roof that adds to its grand atmosphere.
The 658,000 sq ft space has 10,000,000 visitors each year and was named the world’s Best Shopping Centre at the internationally renowned MIPIM Awards in 2017.
The city centre has some of the world’s best restaurants, which offer a massive variety of different cuisines. In recent years it isn’t fine dining that’s got everyone’s bellies rumbling, but street food. Street food has had a major comeback across the city with many bars and restaurants offering this as their main attraction, and in an interesting twist ‘indoor street food’ is now also very popular – the bustling Trinity Kitchen changes up its street food vans every six weeks so city-dwellers are never short of choices.
Leeds has a very proud and rich culture, with many fantastic cultural destinations within the city. Not only is Leeds home to world renowned author Alan Bennett and the much-celebrated artist Damien Hirst, but it is also home to an array of top class museums and galleries including the Leeds City Museum, the Royal Armouries and The Thackeray Museum among others.
Another completed project is the revamp of the Leeds railway station. This £161million redevelopment was part of a £500million transport masterplan for Leeds and was finished in 2019.
The Leeds Station building was updated with a new roof, a new platform, and the area outside of the station was pedestrianised. A number of existing tracks and platforms were also upgraded.
With more and more people travelling to and from Leeds by rail, the station’s redevelopment was a key part in making Leeds a world-class modern city. Leeds station is the busiest in the north and the third-biggest in the UK outside of London. Around 30,000,000 passengers use its services each year.
Music is a big part of the city’s culture, not only is Leeds the birthplace of artists such as Corrine Bailey Rae and The Kaiser Chiefs, it is also home to one of the world’s biggest annual music festivals – Leeds Festival – the partner festival to Reading Festival. The city also proudly boasts many music venues including The 02 Academy and the state of the art First Direct Arena which has recently hosted acts such as Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus.
The sheer number of bars and nightclubs on offer in hotspots such as Call Lane and the newly titled Northern Quarter means residents of the city will never be short of choice and there’s something for everyone. Leeds has also consistently been voted the UK’s best nightlife for the past few years and it’s not difficult to understand why.
Leeds is now home to not one, not two but three universities, two of which are based right in the centre of the city. Leeds University is one of the top higher education institutions in the country and produces some of the most skilled academics in the world. Leeds Beckett University has a very impressive sporting history to boast alongside its academic record – some of the country’s top athletes including rugby league star Kevin Sinfield and Olympics poster girl Jessica Ennis-Hill have studied at and worked with the university.
One of the best attributes the city of Leeds has to offer is its people. Over 780,000 people (compared to Manchester’s 500,000) choose to call Leeds home and this population is filled with some of the most creative, hard working and diverse people in the country. Leeds prides itself as a cosmopolitan city excelling in many areas, particularly in the financial and professional sector. In fact, Leeds is officially the UK’s second largest economy and second largest financial centre after London.
