GRANARY Wharf, Leeds’ canalside development, has won an award for its “outstanding design ethos and build quality”.

An RICS spokeswoman described Granary Wharf as “world class”.

Judges were impressed by the restored features including railway arches and canal dock. Others finalists included Sheffield’s Western Bank Library and Leeds City College’s Keighley campus.
