DETAILS of a large new complex forming part of a £20m development in Huddersfield were unveiled today.
Huddersfield-based Lanson Developments has submitted a planning application for 65 flats to Kirklees Council.
These flats will form phase three of the firm's £20m 1535 The Melting Point development.
Interest in the 190 luxury flats, restaurant and leisure facilities development in Firth Street has resulted in Huddersfield being hailed as Yorkshire's latest property hot spot.
All but a handful of phase one's 57 flats were bought within three hours of being put up for sale, prompting agents Knight Frank to dub 1535 ``the country's fastest-selling residential scheme".
Both phase one and phase two - which consisted of 44 flats - are now sold out.
Now, a planning application has been submitted for 65 one and two- bedroomed contemporary-styled flats, with prices being confirmed when they are put up for sale this year. The flats will be in Commercial Mills, which are to be renovated.
The scheme will boast a three-floor glass entrance atrium and a car park.
The hotel-style lobby area will house the second on-site concierge, a modern staircase and a lift to all floors.
SKA Textiles occupy the mill, but are planning to move.
Work is well under way on the first phase of the development, on the corner of Firth Street and Commercial Street.
Lanson managing director Joe Cookson said flats on the top floor of phase three would have high ceilings with exposed beams and roof lights.
He added that some of the inner ground-floor flats would have small garden areas with patios. Basement parking will be provided for all first and second-floor two-bedroomed flats.
Once complete, 1535 The Melting Point will consist of six buildings. The whole development will be linked by two landscaped gardens incorporating water features, sculptures and seating areas.
The scheme is scheduled to be built in four phases over four years. It will also include the rejuvenation of the banks of the canal.
Lanson, established in 1997, employs 120 people across Yorkshire.
