Also known as Opal Tower
This residential building was originally
proposed by Victoria Hall Ltd, and full
planning was granted in July 2005, for a 23
storey student apartment block, located close
- to both university's central campuses.
The site was subsequently sold to Opal
Student Residencies, who raised a revised
planning application to increase the height of
the tower. Planning approval was granted in
December 2006 and construction work has
commenced on site, with the core rising to full
height in early April, and floor plates being
- constructed from May 2007.
The development was completed in time for
the new academic year in 2008, and is one of
the highest demand and reportedly luxurious
main university student accomodation
- centres available in Leeds.
