Phase Two of Bradford Residential Development the Printworks Has Commenced


The Investment Room has appointed LH1 London to launch phase two of The Printworks, a landmark residential development in Bradford.

Phase two of The Printworks will comprise 137 luxurious one and two-bedroom apartments. Phase one consisted of the conversion of a listed building known as 'Card House'.

The scheme will create 385 flats

The apartments will provide homeowners with spacious, larger than average accommodation and high-quality fixtures and fittings. They will also benefit from onsite parking including'EV charging ports'and visitors parking bays, spacious communal courtyards and a Costa Coffee shop.

Work is currently underway and is due for completion in Q3 2023.
Benjamin Hunter, CEO of LH1 London, said: 'We are delighted to be working alongside The Investment Room to bring this landmark development for Bradford to market. The development is a remarkable project and will be a real asset to the city.

Bradford named as City of Culture for 2025

'We are also really pleased for the people of Bradford receiving the much-deserved accolade 'City of Culture for 2025'. This reflects not only their truly diverse culture but also the City's willingness to create opportunities for all.

'Bradford can now expect considerable inbound investment and huge growth in Employment which will only fuel the requirement for high-quality property in the area. We see Bradford as the Jewel of The Northern Powerhouse and this award is a testament to that.

'We have already seen increasing demand and interest in the build following the success of phase one, and would encourage international buyers and local owner-occupiers to take note of the opportunity here.

Bradford houses over 500,000 people

'Bradford, being one of the largest cities in the UK housing over 500,000 people, is becoming a growing investment opportunity that shouldn't be missed. This is where Manchester, Leeds and Liverpool were a few years ago.'

Works to the listed building will protect its heritage

Councillor Love, The Lord Mayor of Bradford, commented: 'The scheme will create 385 flats and preserve the iconic character of the Art Deco style Grade ll listed building Sharps Card Factory (known as Hallmark House).

'The proposed works to the listed building are considered to largely'protect its heritage'significance, and the development would deliver a substantial provision to meet the district's housing need.'

144 apartments from the first phase have been sold

Lee Jones, director at The Investment Room, said: 'Having successfully sold all of the 144 apartments in the first phase of the development in record time, I am extremely proud to have broken ground on the second phase of The Printworks.

'The positive feedback and sentiments from the local residents and buyers alike has been encouraging.

'It is refreshing to see that our respect for the immense heritage of the existing buildings, whilst also utilising the rest of this large brownfield site through high-quality new apartments, has been widely recognised and partnering with LH1 to sell the apartments to the owner-occupier market as well as selected investors makes this site even more special.'
