Developer Igloo Regeneration and Nick Brown Architects have won the go-ahead for this 73-home scheme in Leeds’ Holbeck Urban Village
The 7,230m² Ironworks project on the former industrial site south of Leeds’ city centre includes 58 flats, 15 townhouses and 140m² of retail space.
Earlier this month Igloo announced it had sold off its other assets and landownership in the surrounding Round Foundry ‘creative neighbourhood’ - an area which it has masterminded over the last decade.
According to the developer the latest scheme ‘sympathetically integrates’ with the surrounding historic mill buildings - exteriors will be constructed using red brick and copper-coloured Cor-ten steel.
Leeds-based design studio, Logan and Golden, is working on thr interiors with Igloo claims will be 35 per cent larger than the minimum space requirement for the city.
Honor Massarella, director at Igloo, said the development team had all put their ‘hearts and souls’ into the planning application.
She said: ‘We’ve assembled an exceptional team that has gone above and beyond to deliver designs which offer a very special proposition for potential home-owners in Leeds.
‘Everything, from the earliest sketches, to the choice of building materials and creative interiors, has been designed in response to the flexible ways that people live today – we’ve tried hard to think ahead for those that will eventually live here.’
