CJCT wins contest for Leeds 'High Line' homes

  • Comment

Carey Jones Chapman Tolcher (CJCT) has won an invited competition for a new housing scheme in Leeds featuring a High Line-style park 

Funded by Alpha Real Trust, the £70 million scheme on the 1.7ha Monk Bridge site west of Leeds City Station will create 300 private rental sector (PRS) homes and 300 flats for private sale.

The AJ100 practice also plans to transform an abandoned Grade II-listed viaduct (built in 1846 by Thomas Grainger) which runs through the former goodsyard into a 300m-long park with its 18 arches developed into ‘a new night-time destination of bars and restaurants’.

The London and Leeds-based company, which is already working on the neighbouring Wellington Place masterplan, saw off a ’number of [unnamed] high-profile practices’ to win the contest.

A planning application for the scheme is expected to be submitted towards the end of this year (2016).
