Welcome to Wheatsheaf Works, a premier development by the award winning Urban Rhythm. Steeped in heritage, Wheatsheaf Works is an iconic Leicester landmark. Located in the popular area of Knighton Fields just a short drive from Leicester City centre, featuring an outstanding collection of uber contemporary studios, apartments and townhouses.
The former Wheatsheaf Works Boot and Shoe Factory was built in 1891, when it was the largest shoe factory in the world. Owned by the Co-operative Wholesale Society, it supplied a wealth of employment opportunities in Leicester. Now it is set for a new lease of life.
Quarter 3 is the third phase of this exciting development, which features the much anticipated conversion of the ornate Grade II Listed New Jacobean factory building. Wheatsheaf Works, with its own clock tower, is being transformed into a series of townhouses, studios and apartments using the latest innovations to retain the existing fabric of the building.
The development boasts undercroft parking to specific plots and units which overlook a distinctive open landscaped courtyard. Further units, again plot specific, feature high ceilings, large windows, exposed brickwork, feature radiators to livings areas and exposed beams, to name but a few.
