City Reach Apartments, Barnsley


The 'City Reach' apartment building was conceived as a striking new addition to the Barnsley sky line. The 14 storey glass-clad structure would provide a mix of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments overlooking the town centre. The ground level would offer retail opportunities as well as a basement with parking spaces for 27 cars.

Construction of the building was contracted to Northfield Construction. The stair core and lift shaft were constructed by UK Slipform to a height of 45m, with the reinforced concrete floors constructed behind it at a pace of 1 floor every 2 weeks.

Work stopped in late 2009 when the recession kicked in and a lack of funding means it hasn't started again since.


It appears that the unfinished apartments have now been bought by a Liverpool company and work is to finally continue:
