Caddick Developments have updated a proposal originally submitted in 2005, for a major mixed-use development in the Quarry Hill area of central Leeds, just a stone’s throw away from the new Victoria Gate development. The original proposal was granted permission in principle, but the associated section 106 agreement was not signed, and the project never progressed.
The plan is to build six buildings between the Eastgate roundabout and Quarry House, some of them potentially as tall as 15-storeys, including 705 flats and more than 1,000 parking spaces. Office space has been allocated 107,000 sq ft, and 34,000 sq ft for restaurants. There is also potential for a medical centre, bars, cafes, and possibly even student accommodation.
The Quarry Hill area is one of Leeds’ main creative hubs, with BBC Yorkshire, Leeds College of Music, Northern Ballet, Phoenix Dance Theatre, West Yorkshire Playhouse, and Yorkshire Dance all clustered together.
Likewise delayed due to the economic crisis, proposals for a new residential scheme incorporating 744 apartments in the Holbeck Urban Village regeneration area have been brought back to life and recommended for approval. The proposed buildings would range from between six and twelve storeys.
