Lee House, Great Bridgewater Street, Manchester
When looking at this building it must be borne in mind that it was originally intended to be seventeen storeys. Only eight were built because of a lack of funds, although it was built in such a way that more floors could be added. It is, according to Pevsner, "one of the very best interwar buildings in the centre." By Harry S. Fairhurst & Son with Henry Sellers, 1928-31. Steel-framed, clad in brown brick with vertical strips of shallow canted windows (the windows were altered in a late-C20th refurbishment). Near the foot of the building are Art Deco mouldings. Grade II listed.
Built as an extension to Tootal Broadhurst Lee, it is now offices.
