Project Spotlight – Victoria Quarter Drone footage

The Victoria Quarter is a Grade II listed shopping and leisure centre in Leeds city centre, consisting of three blocks between Briggate and Vicar Lane which were built between 1898 and 1904, notable for the glazed barrel roofing which is decorated with copious amounts of faience from the Burmantofts Pottery, a number of mosaics and plentiful use of marble.

This incredible drone footage depicts Aura’s 18 months work on the Victoria Quarter, showing the intricately detailed terracotta facade and complex roof domes of this flamboyant and beautiful luxury retail shopping arcade.

You can find the full Project Spotlight about the Victoria Quarter here.
