Harrow acquired the 5.58 acre former Iron Foundry near Leeds city centre in 2003 in a matter of days with simultaneous exchange and completion.
The site is situated adjacent to the River Aire, the Leeds-Liverpool canal and the principal railway line into the city. Despite its long industrial use, little technical information was available and during due diligence Harrow relied entirely upon its in-house team assessments.
