Cottingley Towers was previously the tallest residential building in Leeds, with 25 floors, the towers are 72 metres (236 ft) tall and would not class as a skyscraper. The buildings were built in the 1970s and were refurbished in the late 1980s.
Cottingley Towers, respectfully was once heralded as the tallest residential building in Europe. Much has being done about crime in the area and recent levels of crime have subsided notably over the past 10 years. When built, it was decided not to put a flat/apartment number 13 in either block as westerners regard 13 to be unlucky, and this was the first time a building of this calibre had been built.
