Oakgate breathe new life into landmark chapel allerton building

July 2017

The renaissance of a landmark Grade II-listed listed building in Chapel Allerton, Leeds, continues apace.
5 Stainbeck Lane has been extensively refurbished by leading Yorkshire property developers, the Oakgate Group.

Wetherby-based Oakgate has transformed the 19th century building into a quality mixed-use development of flats and leisure units in the heart of this vibrant urban village.The rapidly-expanding restaurant chain Buca di Pizza has just taken 3,075 sq ft, leaving just 1,645 sq ft of retail and leisure space to lease.

Hollie Shackleton of Oakgate commented: “We are proud of the regeneration of 5 Stainbeck Lane, which has breathed life into a splendid listed building which had fallen on hard times. The immediate conservation area is a well-established eating and drinking location, with popular establishments like the The Mustard Pot, Kith & Kin, The Pit, Casa Mia, Caffe Nero and Aagrah.

“The letting to the popular Buca di Pizza is testament to the quality of the refurbishment and the attractive location. We are already getting a good deal of interest in the remaining unit, which has attractive external seating at the front and rear.

“This unit currently has planning for a pub, cafe or restaurant, but retail, leisure and hot food takeaway uses could also be viable, subject to planning,” said Ms Shackleton.

The property was built in the 19th century as a detached villa-style building, and most recently housed The Manor sports bar.

Hollie Shackleton added: “We believe our regeneration has made 5 Stainbeck Lane a more viable and attractive proposition for commercial operators, whilst the additional flats have served local demand. We are looking forward to completing the picture with the letting of the final unit.”

The marketing agents of 5 Stainbeck Lane are the Leeds offices of retail property specialists Pudney Shuttleworth and Dresler Smith.
