92 Kirkgate, Leeds - The Wapentake

Awarded commendation at Leeds Architectural Awards 2017, this property has been brought back to life and is stimulating new commercial interest in one of city's oldest streets. It is the first regeneration project to be undertaken in this historic area for the Township Heritage Initiative for Kirkgate.

Full historic renovation of the building for commercial use was undertaken. Careful stripping of paint from external walls, restoration of windows and fitting of a new slate roof covering have resulted in both a good investment for the Client and a characterful commercial property already well established within this up and coming historic area of the Leeds city centre.

Arctic also have tremendous experience of work done in collaboration with other bodies which can often be a very complicated business. We were particularly pleased with the architectural award for this project which also got National heritage commendation.

93 Kirkgate Leeds

Following the successful regeneration site of 92 Kirkgate, Leeds, Mood Developments aquired the neighbouring property no. 93 Kirkgate.

Development of the building is a catalyst for regenerating the area economically through leisure and tourism. It has provided the stimulus to inspire imaginative and high quality design, influencing the character of the environment and defining the area’s sense of place within the centre of the city of Leeds.


It has been very rewarding working with Arctic Associates over the last six years. One of the outstanding features is the very precise drawings and specifications which means the work is much simpler once the contractors are on site.
