Repurposing a historic building to meet modern office requirements

Our role

  • Majestic is a grade II listed building which first opened as a cinema during the 1920s.
  • Following an extensive refurbishment, a fire broke out in 2014 causing widespread internal damage.
  • A new approach to the redevelopment of the building was required to provide a viable scheme that brought the prominent building back into use.
  • We undertook detailed pre-application discussions with Leeds City Council, including a presentation to the Plans Panel and Leeds Civic Trust. Our Strategic Communications team led a public consultation exercise which secured both public and political support for the scheme and helped to secure prompt consents.

Majestic, Leeds


  • Our Planning, Heritage & Townscape, Sustainability and Strategic Communications teams secured planning and listed building consent for the transformation of the landmark Majestic building.
  • The approved scheme will provide a mixed-use, primarily office-led development with ground and lower ground floor leisure uses, including restaurants and bars.
  • Channel 4 is expected to move into the Majestic in the second half of 2020.
