LEEDS

Pearl Chambers is a Grade II listed building in the heart of the business-financial and legal district of Leeds. Pearl Chambers is located on the junction of The Headrow, East Parade and South Parade in the centre of Leeds, directly opposite the Art Gallery.  This conversion from office block to high-end residential apartments is in close proximity to the train station, restaurants and shops of the city centre. But, it is not just the fantastic location that makes Pearl Chambers standout; it is the granite, marble and Portland stone façade. The granite base encompasses the ground floor and basement commercial units, where the white Portland stone rises out of the grey granite to feature prominently on The Headrow and East Parade approach. It truly is a Landmark building.

 

Of particular interest are the gothic gargoyles that feature on every window ledge and the carved stone statue of President and Founder of the Pearl Assurance Company, Patrick James Foley- hence the namesake of the ever famous Ale House, Foleys Tap House- on the ground floor. The building’s flagpole is utilised for advertising and, on occasion, patriotic Yorkshire support during the Tour De Yorkshire and the Triathlon.

 

Internally is equally impressive; the now video remotely operated original gates lead to a marble floored lobby with a steel and glass lift shaft rising through the four floors with floor to ceiling windows that illuminate the stairwell that snakes around the feature lift shaft.

 

The building now comprises of 24 luxury 1-bed/2-bed apartments, with two commercial units on the ground floor. Both Mr Foley’s and Stockdales of Yorkshire have been commended; 2016 saw Foley’s awarded The Best Cider award, in 2018 Stockdales was Michelin Guide recommended. In 2018, Stockdales was the second most popular restaurant in Yorkshire.
