Number One, Kirkstall Forge
GLASSOLUTIONS creates the ideal balance between aesthetics and functionality at Kirkstall Forge ‘urban village’ in Leeds
The first commercial development as part of the pioneering new Kirkstall Forge ‘urban village’ in Leeds will culminate in the launch of Number One, Kirkstall Forge, an office building offering over 110,000 sq. ft. of highly flexible workspace over seven floors. With floor-to-ceiling glazing at 2.8m height, Number One, Kirkstall Forge will be a modern, light filled work environment with 360-degree views of the surrounding valley and River Aire. Work began on the first building in February 2016, with occupation due to commence in the autumn of 2017.
Located to the north-west of Leeds, Number One, Kirkstall Forge is part of the 57-acre, £400 million Kirkstall Forge scheme which on completion will offer Grade A office buildings, contemporary housing, green spaces, cafés, bars and restaurants in a stunning riverside location. New road access, a river bridge and new dedicated railway station are all now open, with overall delivery of the scheme spanning the next decade.
Kirkstall Forge’s new dedicated train station connects the site to Leeds City Centre in just six minutes, as well as providing excellent transport links to Bradford and the Yorkshire Dales. Located just five miles from Leeds Bradford airport, Kirkstall Forge will offer residents a thoroughly modern slice of Yorkshire living in a historically significant manufacturing region.
