Residential & Regeneration, Construction & Build

Developer Glenbrook has gained planning for a £140m, 618-apartment build to rent scheme at Kirkstall Road, Leeds.

Located on the bank of River Aire, over half of the 5.1-acre site will be allocated for public open space including a new riverside park.

The homes will be set across five brick-clad buildings which complement the existing riverside.

Designed by Carey Jones Chapman Tolcher, the development will include more than 10,000 sq ft of amenity space including a residents’ lounge, a co-working hub and gym, 3,800 sq ft of commercial space and 6,000 sq ft of private external terraces.

Daniel Roberts, Senior Development Manager at Glenbrook, said: “We identified this prominent former brownfield site as having huge potential and achieving planning will enable us to deliver a highly sustainable scheme which will act as a catalyst for the wider regeneration of Kirkstall Road.

“With planning now secured, we will be looking to commence work on site later this year.”

The project team includes Avison Young (planning), Curtins (structural), Abacus (costs), Crookes Walker Consulting (MEP).
