Following recent developments of the eradication of one of Bradford’s most prominent office buildings from Bradford’s skyline, we’ve delved into the T&A archives bringing you a timeline of the modern-day office block and its surrounding area, once home to some of the oldest warehouses between Nelson Street and Manchester Road.

Built in 1973 and opened in 1974, the pre-fabricated, reinforced concrete framed ‘Trent’ building had been predominantly used as offices for Bradford Council from 1973 until July 2016.

According to a Bradford Council Executive, taking the decision to demolish Jacob’s Well, would mean that the building could be replaced by a £20 million public sector hub. “The demolition will provide savings on the vacant building’s utilities and running costs which could be better spent elsewhere for the benefit of the district’s residents.”
