'Good to see this old iconic building getting a new lease of life' - Express readers have their say on Wakefield waterfront's Rutland Mills redevelopment
This is what Express readers had to say about Wakefield waterfront's new development.
Work has begun at the former Rutland Mills, which will be converted into a new creative businesses facility named Tileyard North.
It is hoped the development will nurture new industries and play a vital roll in the regeneration of the city’s waterfront.
The facility will be a sister project to Tileyard London, which is home to over 250 creative organisations, artists and independent businesses, including a world leading music industry training facility.
More than £40m is expected to be invested in the project.
