Leeds South Bank Scheme Plans Approved
Leeds city centre is going to be getting a facelift over the coming years after the plans for the South Bank Scheme were approved by the Leeds City Plans Panel, Construction Enquirer reported.
Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios has designed the scheme for the regeneration of the nine acre site, which will feature two new office developments, as well as other mixed-use premises.
Detailed planning permission has been granted for the two office buildings, which will deliver 270,000 sq ft of space once completed. Outline planning permission was also approved for the wider mixed-use development.
According to the news provider, this will cover over 1 million sq ft and will feature offices, retail, leisure, hotels and health facilities. This scheme also plans to deliver up to 750 new homes and will create new public spaces and landscaping in the South Bank area of Leeds.
Developer CEG will deliver the scheme, which is also set to include the tallest building in Yorkshire once it’s all finished. There will be five phases of development over the course of the next 12 years.
Head of strategic development north for CEG David Hodgson said that this part of the city has “suffered from neglect over a number of years”.
“This will be an exciting mixed-use development of a critical mass and international standard, revitalising the area and reconnecting local communities to the city,” he added.
There is considerable development happening in Leeds at present, with the city council announcing a scheme for 600 new homes last month.
