Plans in for £300m Leeds development


Plans in for £300m Leeds development

Residential & Regeneration, Construction & Build

Developers have submitted a planning application to Leeds City Council for a £300m mixed-use scheme in the South Bank regeneration area of the city centre.

A joint venture of Shelborn Asset Management and Stamford Property Holdings, operating as Southside Leeds Limited, is behind the plans for ‘Westbank Leeds’.

On behalf of joint venture partnership, and working with Zerum Planning Consultants, DLA Architecture has submitted designs for Westbank Leeds, to be built next to Bridgewater Place on Water Lane.

Westbank Leeds proposes 500,000 sq ft of office space across four buildings alongside a hotel.

Uri Goldberg, managing director of Stamford Property Holdings, said: “With its proximity to Leeds Central Station and the extent of residential development in the immediate vicinity, our site will provide an office led environment, based on the highest standards of sustainability and wellness, helping to reinforce Leeds’s pre-eminence in the north of England.”

DLA Architecture director Jonathan Knowles said: “This new development will bring a high-quality redevelopment to this part of Leeds, supporting the newly created southern entry to the railways station and the emerging residential led developments adjacent. The space will underpin the Holbeck regeneration project and create a rounded and well-balanced community.

“The proposed massing and scale of the buildings sit very well with Bridgwater Place and we have given careful consideration to the positioning of the leisure offers within the public spaces to ensure strong connectivity with the surrounding amenity.”

DLA also recently submitted plans for the redevelopment of the former Yorkshire Post site in Leeds and designed the new £270m development on the former International Swimming Pool site at Lisbon Street.
