Bradford Odeon Regeneration

Client: Bradford Property Forum
Contract Value: 25-30 million

“Our proposal is for a world class, sustainable, state-of-the-art swimming, diving, athletic and multi-sport facility located in a prime position in the heart of Bradford city centre."

Rance Booth Smith Architects are working in partnership with developer Chartback, quantity surveyors Rex Procter and Partners, town planners Turley Associates, advisors Tomorrow Advisory, surveyors Sharma Williamson and technical experts SK(UK) Ltd.

Our intention is to provide an economically and environmentally sustainable proposal which aims to keep as much of the original iconic structure as possible, in particular the retention of the existing towers, whilst allowing for a realistic, viable and successful development of the site.

One of the clear benefits of ‘City Reflections’ is the potential increase in footfall into the city centre. The proposal for high quality active leisure is considered vital in attracting and maintaining economic investment and vitality in the city centre.  This will result in improvements to the health of the residents, and have other significant economic benefits for city centre regeneration.

‘City Reflections’ will create a destination, and will bring new visitors into the city centre. It will create a sense of vibrancy within the city centre which will appeal to residents and visitors of all ages, genders and ethnicities and complement City Park.
