The Xchange | Development Progress

Here you will find the latest progress report and images from the constructions of the Xchange in Bradford, UK. Previously known as Arndale House, award winning architects will transform the original commercial building into the Xchange. This development will consist of a mix of retail and residential developments over 9 floors.

These 126 one and two bedroom apartments will all benefit from a roof garden with seating and even a water feature. The Xchange is also in the absolute ideal location for shopping; directly next to the Broadway Shopping Centre (part of the Westfield shopping family).

All apartments come fully fitted with kitchens and high spec appliances, contemporary bathroom and kitchen fittings, laminate flooring to hallways, kitchen, bathroom and living area. There’s plenty of security features such as CCTV entry system and key card entry system. Secure car parking will also be available, however these will be limited.

Since Bradford is currently undertaking a 10 year regeneration plan worth £35 million, there’s no better time to invest in the area.
