Aspen Woolf, an award-winning property investment firm, are bringing their Liv3 brand to Broadacre House, promising luxury living in the heart of the city centre.

There will be 28 new high-specification one and two-bedroom apartments, over three floors, which will boast some of the most advanced technology in the area.

Each one will have the option to upgrade to a have total home automation, everything from motion and mood lighting to automatic blinds and smart heating all through an advanced smart home package.

Home owners will be able to future-proof their home.

Aspen Woolf say the George Street development will be the first opportunity to be part of the Liv3 brand.

It says they will be the perfect residential hotspot for those looking to embrace an urban lifestyle.

The company says Bradford’s affordable and high demand property markets represents one of the premier buy-to-let hotspots in the UK today and offers an excellent opportunity for investors to secure low-priced property ahead of impressive forecasted growth.

Liv3’s mission is to turn buildings into beautiful, high-specification properties while creating small local communities.

The new residential building will offer 28 apartments, over three floors of the former offices complete with a roof conversion creating dormers on all the apartments.

The company says the development will offer high quality accommodation at an affordable price with one-bedroom apartments starting at £72,519.

Each one will have the option to have total home automation, through an advanced smart home package provided by Loxone.

The company hopes Liv3 will be become the brand of choice for young professionals looking for luxury living within reach of everything their city has to offer.

Oliver Ramsden at Aspen Woolf said: “We’re pleased to be able to bring this investment opportunity to Bradford as this is a highly anticipated project in the heart of the city centre.

“Bradford has seen a period of sustained investment over the last few years and is set to receive a further £75 million to attract urban entrepreneurs. It is the perfect time to invest, as investors can purchase at the lowest possible price to gain the highest potential returns.”

According to the company, Yorkshire is set to grow at more than twice the rate of London over the next five years with a predicted increase of 17.6%, and it is one of the most affordable places to purchase a property in the UK.

Work is due to start on the development in the next few weeks and to be completed in autumn 2020.

Plans to convert the building were approved in September.

Broadacre House was the former offices of Yorkshire Water, but in 2011 the large, multi storey section of the building was sold and converted into a Premier Inn. Occupancy of the annex building has dwindled in recent years.

It was listed for sale last year, and failed to sell at an auction in December.

The building would retain its 10-space car park.

The application says that the site was originally occupied by housing in the 1850s. By the 1890s the land was the site of the Woodman Inn pub. It was a car park in the 1960s and the offices were built in 1989.
