1 Canal Place has benefitted from extensive repair and refurbishment to create a modern office building from an 18th century warehouse. It’s located on the Leeds Liverpool Canal in central Leeds. The conversion was designed by Nick Brown Architects of Leeds.
The building was challenging to photograph from the front due to it’s proximity to the main A58 road. Inside, it was much lighter than I expected. There’s a balcony off the top floor giving views across the city.

1 Canal Place is on the A58, almost directly opposite the well known landmark, Leeds Commercial Van Hire near Armley Gyratory.
Thanks to the Facebook group, Secret Leeds 2, I’ve been able to discover more information about this building. It appears on the 1901 Leeds Insurance map as 14 Armley Road “Fodder Mill & Stores.” At that time Canal Place was the next small street which has now disappeared.
In the 1990’s it was a software company office. You can view a 1999 shot of the same building here on Leodis.
