The latest landmark on a Yorkshire city's skyline has been launched to the public.

Designed by CareyJones Architects, a launch event for the public last night marked the completion of the final stage of development at Granary Wharf, which has undergone a £90m facelift at the hands of ISIS Waterside Regeneration and includes the new City Inn hotel.

The building incorporates a roof-top terrace which is 75m above the ground.

Twenty-one storey cylindrical residential building Candle House

Twenty-one storey cylindrical residential building Candle House in Leeds has been developed by ISIS Waterside Regeneration.

The decked garden features large glass windows surrounding the circumference of the circular space.

Candle House includes 160 apartments ranging from studio to one and two bedroom properties. Prices range from £99,950 for a studio apartment to £199,950 for a two-bedroom apartment.

Eligible buyers can benefit from the government backed HomeBuy Direct scheme at both Granary Wharf properties, Candle House and Waterman's Place.

Mark Howe, of ISIS, said: "The design of the building gave us some hurdles to overcome both in the planning and development of Candle House, but from the moment John (Thorpe, Leeds civic architect) suggested a circular building, the entire team agreed that this was definitely the way to maximise the use of this striking waterside location."

The first two stages of development at Granary Wharf completed last year, including City Inn, Leeds's newest hotel which launched last September.

The development also will benefit from a new live music and real ale venue, The Hop, due to launch on March 26 which will be the first Leeds venture for Yorkshire-based Ossett Brewery.

Future plans for the area include a series of events and markets to be announced in April, which will animate the public realm throughout the summer.
