Yorkshire and the Humber

Sitting directly north of the East Midlands, Yorkshire and the Humber has a history strongly connected to the steel, coal and farming industries. Although still a major player in the UK’s energy industry, the region is still adjusting to the move towards cleaner fuels and cheap steel imports. However, Leeds is a thriving finance and business hub, while Sheffield has enjoyed a strong resurgence in recent years as a centre for the creative arts and music. Grimsby is the centre of the UK’s fishing industry, with agriculture and food processing also providing a major source of income for the region.

Yorkshire and the Humber counties

South Yorkshire

Formed of the districts of Sheffield, Rotherham, Barnsley and Doncaster, South Yorkshire is the southernmost area within Yorkshire and the Humber. The Pennines dominate the county’s landscape, with part of the Peak District National Park lying within South Yorkshire.

West Yorkshire

West Yorkshire constitutes five metropolitan boroughs: City of Bradford, City of Leeds, Calderdale, Kirklees and City of Wakefield. Bradford, Halifax and Huddersfield were strongly connected to England’s wool industry, with much of their history and architecture dictated by it, while Leeds and the south of the county are more connected to heavy engineering industries.

North Yorkshire

England’s largest non-metropolitan county, North Yorkshire is famous for the North York Moors and the Yorkshire Dales National Parks. Middlesbrough and York are its two largest urban settlements, while other key towns include Harrogate and Scarborough.

Great place to live, great staff, great apartments

Location is spot on.
Staff are friendly and great – Dan has helped out a number of times and is always happy to help.
The apartments are done to a fantastic standard, very spacious and a lot of natural light.
The only slight negative sentiment is the roof terrace – although it’s open, there’s not really much – furniture would solve this.
Overall, very glad we chose this place; easy to get into town, gym on-site, great staff.

Please review your development:

Development itself is great. Extremely convenient to have the gym, and once there’s furniture on the terrace I couldn’t say a bad word about the place.
The co-working space is great, too. It’s spacious, free tea and coffee, always kept clean and tidy.
As mentioned before, all of the staff here are more than happy to help at any given time. There’s a good sense of community here.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Parking can be a nightmare. I didn’t really have much luck on ‘Just Park’ or similar apps – so if you need a car just be wary.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

Raise it on the app and it gets looked at – simple, efficient and works well.

Great location, short walk to the canal & town centre

Great location, short walk to the canal & town centre. Few minutes from Wellington Place with a variety of lunch/dinner spots, bars, as well as Sainsburys. A few minutes further and you’re in the town centre.

Can park on the road outside the flats for a short period without getting a ticket, or can pay extra for a secured parking space.

On the side of the main motorway so can be a bit noisy, but you do get used to it and can’t hear it after a short while. Never had any complaints with this!

Safe area, no anti social behaviour or anything like that.

Please review your development:

Flat is modern and spacious with quality standard bathrooms.

Average price for renting in Leeds city centre at the moment.

Building management is good, Rosie is always very helpful if you’ve got any questions/need help.

It’s easy to report any maintenance needs on the website, and they are relatively quick to come fix it.

The only complaint I would have, is there has been regular issues with the lift where it has been broken and out of use for a few days or more while you wait on it getting fixed. There is an alternative route to the other buildings lift, but would be ideal for this not to happen as often.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

You can’t seem to get a smart meter fitted in the flats to help with cheaper electric, so the electric bill may be a bit more expensive than other places in the centre. My average bill is around £90 per month, with being out of the house majority of the day all week and not using it much in the evenings.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

Rosie has always been brilliant and quick to respond to any issues that I’ve had. Can’t give her enough credit, always willing to help and sort anything that I’ve needed.
