Planning permission has been secured to revitalise the 3.5ha acre site, delivering a vibrant, well connected and sustainable mixed-use development in the heart if South Bank. The derelict brownfield site is a gateway to the city from the South West and will be transformed into a place to live, work, eat, drink, shop, meet and relax. Work commenced in early 2019 on site clearance.
The planning permission includes:
- Detailed planning permission for two office developments with ground floor retail and leisure space totalling up to 26,100 m²
- Outline planning permission for mixed-use development of up to 103,900 m² of offices, retail, leisure, hotel, health, education and community uses, as well as parking and up to 750 new homes, along with new public open spaces and landscaping
- CEG is working with award-winning architects, Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios (FCBStudios), which secured the coveted International Tall Building of the Year Award in 2010 for Broadcasting Place in Leeds, seeing off competition from some of the world’s most prestigious buildings.
They have designed a new mixed-use community which builds on the historic character of the area with landmark buildings and innovative public spaces in a key location close to Leeds City Station and the canal.
