Plans for £280m mixed-use project in Leeds | News

Plans have been submitted for a £280million mixed-use neighborhood in central Leeds designed by a team including Sheppard Robson.

Developers Glenbrook and Town Center Securities (TCS) have formed a joint venture to develop the Whitehall Riverside development close to the city’s train station.

If approved, it will include up to 532 apartments spread over two blocks of 15 and 18 floors with commercial space on the ground floor and a series of new pedestrian and cycle routes.

Two other buildings will house 215,000 square feet of office space, as well as a 478-space multi-storey parking lot and a 108-room hotel. The site is sandwiched between the city center and the River Aire.

Landowners TCS have already proposed three projects on the site, including the No 1 Whitehall Riverside office block, the residential development known as Whitehall Waterfront and a Premier Inn hotel completed in 2017.

The project team also includes local architect Enjoy Design, multidisciplinary consultant Curtins, who also has an office in the city, and ID Planning.

Galliford Try is currently building a £105million PRS scheme in a former steelworks near Whitehall Road.

Last November, the City Council gave the green light to a £270million project to build two residential towers on the former site of the International Swimming Pool.

The proposals designed by DLA Architecture will include 629 apartments as well as a 24-story student accommodation tower and a 15-story hotel and office building.
