CEG has submitted a hybrid planning application for a new mixed-use community on a 3.52 hectare site just minutes from the new southern entrance to Leeds City Station.
FCBStudios is working with developer CEG on plans to transform the former industrial site into an exceptional living and working environment which celebrates its rich historic character. The plans include detailed planning permission for two office buildings totalling 26,100m² with ground floor retail and leisure, as well as outline planning for a 104,000m² mixed-use development, 750 homes and new public spaces and landscaping.
The site is part of the South Bank regeneration area and aims to create a sustainable community that connects areas of Holbeck and Beeston to Leeds City Centre through a network of safe and attractive cycle and walking routes and public spaces.
Jon Kenny, development director at CEG explained: “This is a derelict site where we can deliver a vibrant mixed-use strategic development of a critical mass and international quality that can enable this regeneration area to become a true gateway into the city, reconnecting local communities.”
Alex Whitbread, partner at FCBStudios, said: “FCBStudios is proud of its commitment to Leeds. It’s a privilege for us to be working with CEG on the wider South Bank proposals, which are truly a once in lifetime opportunity to transform the city for the 21st Century.”
FCBStudios are also working with CEG on Kirkstall Forge, Leeds.
