Vastint have acquired 8.1 hectares of land including the former Tetley Brewery Site in Leeds South Bank in 2016. The site is close to the city’s retail and financial quarters and Leeds Station and the River Aire waterfront.
Working closely with Leeds City Council and other stakeholders, Vastint plans to redevelop the site to create vibrant, well connected and sustainable mixed use neighbourhood.
The design proposes a vibrant development including a city centre park at its heart. The scheme will provide a vital link connecting the city centre with the South Bank and its creative neighbourhoods, through to the education centre and the communities to the south.
The first phase has outline planning consent for an initial 2ha contribution to the City Park, up to 850 homes, 900,000 sq ft of employment space and 160,000 sq ft of active uses. A hotel comprising up to 400 rooms is also proposed. Site clearance is already underway, with construction likely to start by early 2020.
