Town Centre Securities PLC (TCS), has submitted a planning application for a 17-storey office and retail development at the Central Square in the Merrion Centre Leeds as part of it’s second 10-year strategy for the 93,000 sq m venue.
Over the last decade TCS have undertaken a phased redevelopment and refurbishment of the Merrion Centre transforming it into a busy, relevant, mixed-use destination. The company has invested more than £70M of capital in the last five years alone delivering a number of high profile projects including the redevelopment and extension of Merrion House (pre-let to Leeds City Council), an ibis Styles Hotel with adjoining Arnold’s Restaurant & Bar and refurbished 1000 space CitiPark car park.
The proposed new Building will incorporate a new Home Bargains store together with plans including the creation of a new central welcome hub, co working offices and brand-new head office building for StepChange Debt Charity. The building, currently known as 100MC, will offer 10,000 sq ft of ground floor retail space and 168,810 sq ft of commercial office space over 16 levels. It is anticipated that 100MC will be the place of work for circa 2000 people.
