The Xchange, Bradford

The iconic former Arndale House, now re-branded “The Xchange” by our clients Pinnacle Alliance, sits in the very heart of the City of Bradford. It is within the City Centre Conservation Area.

The building was a former office block and our proposals saw it being converted to 126 mixed one and two bedroom apartments set over seven floors of residential, with two lower floors of mixed commercial, retail and leisure. NC Architecture were commissioned to seek Planning Consent for the apartments via the Prior Approval route, Consent for which came through in under six weeks!

Leading a design team of Structural Engineers, Fire Engineers and ME Engineers, NC Architecture brought the design to compliance with the Building Regulations via the Approved Inspector route. NC Architecture also undertook the full space and interior design, with FF&E for all apartment types, that would see this landmark building gain a new lease of life sat alongside the £260m Broadway Shopping Centre, which opened in November 2015.

Construction is already underway.
