A planning application for the refurbishment and extension of Lion House, 41 York Place, Leeds, on behalf of Mood Developments, has been validated by Leeds City Council this week.

Lion House is a grade II listed building. The project comprises the refurbishment and extension of the building to create six new high quality residential apartments at first, second and third floor levels, including a rooftop extension, whilst retaining office accommodation at lower and upper ground floor levels.

The proposals have been designed to manage change in a way that conserves and enhances the character and appearance of the Leeds City Centre Conservation Area and celebrate the building’s special architectural and historic interest; thereby facilitating its long term, sustainable use, ensure that it will be protected for future generations.
