Developer Igloo Regeneration and Nick Brown Architects have published new plans for a 73-home scheme in Leeds’ Holbeck Urban Village
Due to be submitted for planning later this month, the 7,230m² Ironworks project marks the latest phase in Igloo’s ongoing redevelopment of the former industrial site south of Leeds’ city centre.
The developer has already worked with Chetwoods Architects and Amenity Space on schemes in the emerging ‘creative neighbourhood’ and is billing the new residential plans as ‘the next vital piece in the jigsaw’.
The latest proposals by Leeds-based Nick Brown Architects, which emerged from the now closed 2B Architecture, includes 58 flats, 15 townhouses and 140m² of retail space.
Igloo director Honor Massarella said: ‘The [recent] public consultation was well attended and the response to our designs were extremely positive. We had some great feedback at the event but this was by no means the end of the process: we’re still welcoming comments from people who live, work and enjoy spending leisure time in the local area.
‘Our Marshall’s Mill and Round Foundry developments have helped to put Holbeck Urban Village firmly on the map for creative and digital businesses. The residential plans are the next vital piece in the jigsaw for Igloo, to further strengthen the community that has been established over the last decade.’
If the plans are approved, work is expected to begin on site this autumn and complete by 2017.
