Who says print's dead? Former Yorkshire Post HQ becomes latest BTR development

The former home of The Yorkshire Post has been turned into a new build-to-rent property by Grainger.

The building, one of Leeds’ most historic sites, sticks to its news roots as the building is called The Headline and features nods to the former newspaper HQ through art and design.

A team from interior design and architecture practice 74, were inspired by the site’s former newspaper associations, with curved joinery framework throughout referencing newspaper printing production rails, as well as integrated art and set dressing, from typewriters to wall clocks showing the time in major cities throughout the world.

Bianca Yousef, associate at 74, said: “When it came to creating the look and feel of the communal social spaces within The Headline building, we wanted to create something a bit different from the harder-edged, more corporate and polished feel of many of the surrounding buildings.

“The idea was for a softer, more elegant and sophisticated series of spaces for residents to work, rest and play in, with the scheme also integrating ideas and inspiration from the site’s former life as the Yorkshire Post newspaper headquarters, where both the paper’s publishing and printing took place.”
