List of tallest buildings in Yorkshire

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Yorkshire has many tall buildings, the current tallest building is Bridgewater Place in Leeds. Sheffield, Bradford, Kingston upon Hull and Doncaster also have tall buildings and there are many planned to be built. York has a low-rise skyline, the tallest building being the Minster.

High-rise residential blocks are common in many towns and cities in Yorkshire, with many councils, particularly Leeds, Halifax and Kingston upon Hull enthusiastically embracing high-rise living in the 1960s and '70s. Sheffield has fewer high-rise residential blocks, with the council there looking more towards the more modern 'wall like' developments.
