Leeds-based specialist contractor, Priestley Construction, has commenced the £800,000 restoration of Green Lane Mill in Holmfirth into 11 luxury, two-bedroom apartments.
Priestley Construction was awarded the contract to carry out a six-month construction programme on behalf of the developer, Green Lane Mill Developments Ltd.
The project will see the contractor transform the 19th-century mill building into a high-specification residential development for local owner-occupiers. Work is expected to be completed early Q2 2020.
Green Lane Mill is situated approximately one mile from Holmfirth town centre and seven miles from Huddersfield.
Prospective residents will benefit from easy access to the Peak District National Park, which is approximately four miles south of Holmfirth.
The development is designed by architects, Priestley Design Ltd, with Indigo Planning acting as planning consultant.
Rob Pell, head of construction at Priestley Construction, said: “Our specialist team is working hard to bring this stunning mill, which has been vacant for two years, back to its former glory.
“We have an unrivalled track record in transforming disused, historic buildings throughout the UK into high-specification new homes and Green Lane Mill adds to growing client portfolio.”
Gillian Archer, property director of the developer, Green Mill Developments Ltd, said: “Priestley Construction is renowned for bringing developments of this kind to life, so it was a natural fit to appoint them as main contractor for this project.
“We are thrilled to begin the transformation of this impressive mill into high-end, luxury accommodation. The design and specification of the development will keep the unique characteristics of the building, which sits in the stunning surroundings of Holmfirth.”
