Clarence Dock is a shopping and leisure destination in central Leeds, West Yorkshire, England. It also hosts a large residential population in waterside apartments, as well as a significant office presence.
It is located by the River Aire next to the Royal Armouries Museum which faces onto Armouries Square. Clarence Dock’s main shopping street radiates southbound off Armouries Square and is called ‘The Boulevard’. Another important focal point is ‘The Anchorage’ at the top of the dock itself. The whole development opened officially to the public in late 2007. The retail and leisure sector of the development was launched on Saturday 11 October 2008 with fashion shows from celebrity fashion consultant and TV presenter Gok Wan. Upon completion, Clarence Dock now attracts around 1.5 million visitors a year.
The Clarence Dock development scheme features Clarence House, a 218-foot (66 m) tower consisting of 227 apartments and six retail units. Upon completion in April 2007, it became the eighth tallest building in Leeds, it has however now been pushed to being the twelfth tallest building. (source: wikipedia)
