Broadcasting Tower houses Leeds Metropolitan University's Faculty of Arts, Environment and Technology.

A (maybe somewhat debatable) work of art within itself Broadcasting Tower on the north side of Leeds City Centre houses Leeds Metropolitan University's Faculty of Arts, Environment and Technology as well as containing student accommodation.

Being quite a dominant structure on Woodhouse Lane its COR-TEN weathering steel cladding has sparked debate over it's looks, however this did not stop it from taking home the 2010 Best Tall Building Overall award as granted by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat which is based in Chicago and is considered an authority on tall buildings. Completed in 2009, it was designed by architects Feilden Clegg Bradley.
