Landmark site ready for a visionary investor


This 0.68 hectare site is a blank canvas, ready to take on creative ideas from those who think big, and want to make a lasting impression

Exchange Court is a dream location within Bradford’s City Centre. So much so that since the announcement of its availability for redevelopment, many have speculated about the possibilities of its use.

This council-owned site offers a great location, adjacent to the new £260 million Broadway Shopping Centre and the Transport Interchange, and is ideal for a number of uses, including the development of office accommodation and complementary leisure, residential and retail uses. The council is looking for a development partner who can help make this happen.

If you think that you are that person and would like to build on the success the City of Bradford is currently undergoing, then this opportunity is not to be missed. The Exchange Court site’s central location, adjacent to shopping and transport hubs, the Leisure Exchange, City Hall, the multi award-winning City Park and within the City Centre Growth Zone make it essential for further consideration.

The City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council would be interested in talking to investors and developers who are ready to work with the Council to transform this prime location

Why everyone's talking about Bradford as the next big thing

Everyone’s looking for the next big development opportunity. Many are now taking a look at the City of Bradford, the Producer City. With close to a billion pounds worth of projects in the regeneration pipeline across the District, it’s a city that no savvy investor or developer can choose to ignore.

This historic location, the centre of the textile revolution, is the UK’s 5th biggest city and has the Yorkshire Dales on its doorstep. It is home to Saltaire, a World Heritage Site, and an internationally renowned University & Business School. It is rich in diversity, with over 100 languages spoken across the District. It doesn’t stop there. Bradford also has a very young, highly motivated potential workforce waiting in the wings. With around a quarter of its population 16 or under, shrewd investors will be quick to capitalise on this powerhouse in the years to come.

With Leeds 25 minutes, Manchester 40 minutes, Birmingham 2 hours and London only 2.5 hours away, you don’t really need an airport. But if you really do want one as part of your plans, then it has that too; Leeds Bradford Airport is only a few minutes away with many international flights flying daily.

If you have a commercial, mixed use development project in mind and are looking for an exciting city centre location, then this is prime and should be considered.
