Leeds City Council has given its approval to plans for a £55m mixed-use development at Granary Wharf in Leeds city centre, adding to the ongoing regeneration of the South Bank.
The site is located on Wharf Approach, off Water Lane, and is currently being used as a car park. In its place, 250 new riverside homes for the private rented sector will be built, spread over three individual buildings (a mix of one, two, and three-bedroom apartments), as well as 9,000 sq ft of offices, bars, restaurants, cafes, and landscaped public areas.
The expansive project forms part of Leeds City Council’s regeneration vision for the area. Work is expected to begin on site later this year, and will be completed by the end of 2018.
David Topham, chief executive of developers CTP, said: “The South Bank is currently one of the most dynamic parts of Leeds, with the impending arrival of Burberry, the regeneration of Tower Works and the tremendous success of the ground-breaking Round Foundry. The bar is very high and we will ensure that our new development meets the high standards set in South Bank and Holbeck Urban Village.”
