DEVELOPERS have applied for permission to house more offices in Huddersfield's historic St George's Warehouse.
HD1 Developments has asked Kirklees Council for permission to turn the ground floor of the five-storey former railway warehouse building into office or retail units.
Officers are set to decide on the application after April 7.
The company, based at the warehouse at New North Parade, gained planning consent in 2004 for offices on the first and second floors and 62 one and two-bedroom flats on the two floors above.
They did not apply for permission for offices on the ground floors because they planned to have it as one large retail unit.
However, after Kirklees Council highways officers expressed concerns about traffic problems this could generate, the developers decided to compromise.
They now want the floor to house office units and some small retail outlets, such as cafes.
Work is set to the start on the 240,000 sq ft Grade II listed 1870s warehouse in the autumn.
It has stood empty for 30 years - and earlier this year, Kirklees Council threatened to buy the building if work did not start on the redevelopment soon.
When finished, the building near Huddersfield Railway Station will boast a glazed roof and atrium space.
