Bird's Eye view looking north from York Street (City Centre)
Colour image28th July 2014. Bird's Eye view looking north from the 8th floor at the top of the multi-storey Kirkgate Market car park in York Street. Here we can see the colourful stalls of the open market in the foreground, and beyond, the site being cleared for phase 1 of the Victoria Gate development. In the foreground, left, is the entrance to the indoor section of Kirkgate Market. Across the centre is the line of the north side of Eastgate. The south side (Eastgate Terrace) has been demolished to make way for the new Victoria Gate development scheme. This is a really good view of the site of phase 1 of Victoria Gate. At the left edge, in the centre, are properties in Harewood Street, which, with Vicar Lane, forms the western border. Harewood Street and Sidney Street will be pedestrianised and this new public realm will give easy access to the Victoria Quarter and Victoria Gate (via Sidney Street). Kirkgate Market, Eastgate and the second phase of the development will be approached via Harewood Street). Shoppers will be able to use the public realm area, which will comprise part of George Street, to access the eastern side of the open market and the southern entrance of John Lewis. John Lewis will be a focal point of this site and it is to be built adjacent to the site of Millgarth Police Headquarters, the large brick building seen on the right. This will eventually be demolished to be replaced by a multi-storey car park.

Demolition of Millgarth Police Headquarters (City Centre)
Colour image30th November 2014. Image is taken from the small roundabout in St. Peter's Street and shows the partially demolished Millgarth Police Headquarters. The building, which dates from 1976, is to be replaced by an 800 space multi-storey car park as part of the first phase of the Victoria Gate scheme. The first phase will also include the construction of a four storey, 24,600 square metre flagship department store for John Lewis and also twin street arcades. At the right edge Eastgate roundabout is visible. The three storey building, seen right, with curved frontage, stands at the corner with Bridge Street and Eastgate and is called Union House. Next to Union House is the taller Circle house which stands between the junctions of Temple Place and Bridge Street and is addressed as 27,29 and 31 Eastgate. To the left of Circle House red brick properties on the north side of Eastgate can be seen. Much of the south side of Eastgate had been demolished by the time this photograph was taken to begin construction on the Victoria Gate development. In the background, centre, the multi-storey Hume House in Tower House Way can be seen.

From Millgarth Police Headquarters towards Eastgate (City Centre)
Colour image4th June, 2014. View from Millgarth Police Headquarters, left, towards Eastgate where demolition is in progress. The red brick buildings are a continuation of Sir Reginald Blomfield's designs for the Headrow and Eastgate, begun in the late 1920s. The two end building are virtually identical and are known as the "Book End" buildings (1939). They flank Eastgate where the double decker buses can be seen. Union Street runs between the Police HQ. and the partially demolished numbers 44 to 46 Eastgate, left. Numbers 44 to 46 were formerly Hoagy's Bar but the demolition is to facilitate the new Victoria Gate scheme and a new four storey, 24,00 sq. m. John Lewis store is to be built on part of the site in Phase 1. Millgarth Police HQ. will also be cleared to build an 800 space multi-storey car park.
