The Estates Building – The Station Gateway Development

a great place to live

We aim to make Huddersfield town centre a family-friendly town where everyone feels safe and welcome. We aim to provide a dedicated community that welcomes potential residents and visitors from all walks of life with a reassuring presence. We’ll look to work with other agencies to commit resources to achieve this.

The Estates Building – The Station Gateway Development

These buildings have been part of the Huddersfield landscape for over 140 years. The Estate Buildings were originally built in 1874 and were designed by the famous architect William Henry Crossland, who was born in Huddersfield.

The Estates is a Grade II Listed building and is of great importance to Huddersfield’s heritage. It sits within the Station Gateway, a key development area for the Huddersfield Blueprint. It is also in the High Street Heritage Action Zone, a regeneration programme in partnership with Historic England.

The journey so far …

Funding from Historic England ensures this building will maintain its historical features and value whilst adding to the development of the town. Preparing this building for new long-term and viable use whilst ensuring its retention for future generations is paramount to the Huddersfield Blueprint vision.

The Estates project is currently in phase one of its external repairs, with repair work taking place on the facade and rear of the building.

On the 26th of July 2022 cabinet approved the plans to develop the Estates building for residential purposes.

As part of Blueprint’s vision, we want to future-proof our town’s heritage by providing affordable accommodation within the town centre by transforming this historic building into characterful and welcoming properties.   

New town centre residents will benefit current and future retail and leisure developments which will bring a new lease of life into the town.
