Metropolitan Building, Lee Street, Leicester
Metropolitan Building, Lee Street, Leicester
To me this has the look of a 1960s/1970s office block - it doesn't have the frills or jaunty angles of a new-build - but I can find no evidence for this and it is now flats, or in the modern parlance, apartments. For the last 10-20 years, most, if not all, British cities have pushed city-centre living, mostly targeted at young professional types, in an attempt to reverse their depopulation during non-working hours.
