The building, once the world’s largest silk mill, now houses a fabulous collection of new homes, offices, retail and leisure space. Situated adjacent to Silk Warehouse, the first phase of Lister Mills to be completed by Urban Splash, the 15 new apartments are located within Velvet Mill.
Guy Ackernley of Urban Splash said: “Throughout our restoration of Velvet Mill, we have worked hard to create contemporary homes which sit well within the building’s original fabric – ensuring its original features have been sympathetically retained alongside 21st century design.
“This new phase of dramatic, curved rooftop apartments withhold timeless features such as the original brickwork and beams, combined with streamlined modern kitchen areas and stylish bedrooms – it’s transformed an already magnificent building into a modern day classic. We’re looking forward to welcoming our new tenants and know Velvet Mill is somewhere they’ll be really proud to call home.”
Location wise, the new tenants at Velvet Mill will benefit from being embedded in the busy hub of the Manningham community as they’re perfectly situation on Lilycroft Road.
They’ll be surrounded by plenty of eateries, cafes and local amenities and well situated for commuting further afield as the apartments are located just over a mile from Bradford city centre, served by regular bus services and a short walk from Frizinghall train station with direct links to Bradford and Leeds.
