The Climate Innovation District in Leeds’ South Bank is an exemplar sustainable scheme of over 520 new low carbon homes alongside a primary school, offices, leisure and manufacturing. It is set alongside the river with a strong focus on public realm and building design and linked by a new pedestrian bridge spanning the Aire.
The houses are all being delivered from an on-site factory, using modern methods of construction to world leading energy performance standards. The first family homes in over 90 years will see families once again inhabiting the city centre and helping transform the city into a vibrant and diverse 24 hour place.
The scheme is being delivered in phases over a number of years. Phase 1 is under way, the first homes are now complete and residents are due to move in shortly.
