ADP has won backing from Leeds City Council for a £1 billion mixed use scheme in the Yorkshire city
Councillors on the authority’s executive board voted to support in principle the development at Millshaw Industrial Estate.
Forming a mixed-use extension of the adjacent White Rose Office Park, the plans would also include a primary school, health facilities and other amenities.
A new White Rose station would link this area of south Leeds with the city centre. Office and retail space would be created.
Munroe K, owner of the White Rose Office Park, is behind the plans. David Aspin, founder of Munroe K, said: ‘The site will be pedestrianised, environmentally responsible, safe and well-served by road, bus and rail, providing residents and users with a unique work-life environment.’
ADP chair Roger FitzGerald added: ‘Our vision for the site is to generate new and holistic ways of working, living, learning and relaxing.
‘The masterplan will include a nursery, schools and hubs for local colleges and universities; business incubators and accelerators; cafés, bars and restaurants; flats and hotels; small start-up office units and studios to large headquarters; doctors and dentists and a community centre – a vibrant mix of uses, with urban spaces and a green parkland setting that will shape new ways of living and working.’
The practice intends to develop the masterplan to a planning application at the end of this year.
