We recently went to watch a show at the Leeds Grand Theatre. It was my first visit to the venue and I was gobsmacked by the size and the architecture of the building. The outside of the building doesn't do it any justice considering what's inside.
I understand what you are saying and there does appear to be a desire to get more students living in Leeds which should be a concern as these area's are empty of Students for circa 2 months of the year so will these area's of the city become a ghost town ?If I'm honest i'm not keen on the basis on this render alone.
One of the emerging problems I see in Leeds is we have far too many poor quality tall student towers versus high quality low rise office grade buildings. The latest tall tower, Atlas House is possibly an exception to that.
It's a real bug bear of mine as I see some really outstanding talls going up in Manchester and Birmingham but Leeds city council seems to allow developers to build whatever they like in Leeds instead of raising the standards.
