The 23-storey Broadcasting Place tower in Leeds has been named as one of the best four towers erected across the world in 2010.
The tower, which stands at less than 70m tall, was recognised by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH), which said it was equal to some of the largest structures built by man.
Designed by Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios, Broadcast Place in Woodhouse Lane is made out of deliberately rusted steel.
It is a mixed-use building that provides offices, teaching space, and student accommodation from Leeds Metropolitan University.
Matthews and Goodman was the planning consultant, and construction was given the go-ahead in March 2007.
The three other buildings to be recognised by the CTBUH were the Burj Khalifa in Dubai which, at 828m, is more than 11 times higher than Broadcasting Place; the 163m Pinnacle@Duxton in Singapore and the 366m Bank of America tower in New York.
