Building Project Statement – 03/08/07

New Building Project:

 We were very disappointed that for various reasons it became impossible for us to continue working with Rushbond to develop a new purpose-built home for NBT and Phoenix Dance Theatre in the centre of Leeds.

We are extremely grateful to Leeds City Council who have reviewed the delivery options and agreed to take responsibility for the development. This includes an additional injection of £3M of funding and Project Management provided by the Council. This increases the Council’s contribution to more than £7M.

£3.5M will come from Arts Council England through Lottery funding and the balance of the £11.675M estimated cost will come from NBT and PDT fundraising. A major appeal will be launched shortly.

The City Council’s strategic design alliance has started work on the design of the new building which will be located on Quarry Hill.

Further details will be added to the website as the project develops in the coming months…  Update available here.
