The location;
Opal Tower, officially known as Opal 3, Leeds is a 25 storey building in Leeds, West Yorkshire, England. It serves as student accommodation for 542 students and is close to the Civic Quarter campus of Leeds Metropolitan University and the University of Leeds. The initial planning application for this site (previously occupied by the Londoner pub) on Jacob St, Leeds city centre, was submitted in July 2005, for a 23 storey student apartment block. This design was later altered after initial approval and permission was granted in December 2006 to build the current 25 storey tower. Construction work began in early 2007 with an expected completion date of September 2008. The building was designed by Morrison Design and was developed by Opal Property Group, with the site contractor being Ocon Construction. Construction was completed on time, with the development opening to its student tenants between the 15th and 20th. The development is the third tallest building in Leeds, after Bridgewater Place and The Plaza Tower which took Opal 3's title approximately a year after its completion.
Infiltration;
After not doing this for quite some time, i was well up for getting back up there. Seeing some friends head up there the night before i wasted no time and me and @butters headed up while it was still light. We stood shadily outside, trying to blend in as a student waiting for someone to let us in. Once in we took the lift to the 23rd floor and from there hit the stairs.
I think this is my fave rooftop in the North, and it give spectacular views over leeds and the surrounding areas.

Wow, some great shots there.
