FCBS’s £350m Leeds South Bank scheme to start next month

  • Comment

Work is set to start next month on Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios’ £350 million South Bank scheme in Leeds – which could eventually include Yorkshire’s tallest tower

Developer Commercial Estates Group (CEG) announced last week that it had reached agreement with Leeds City Council over its Section 106 commitments for the 3.5ha development, which was granted planning consent back in April.

This means work can get underway in November, demolishing a warehouse building on Water Lane and preparing the site for development. Archaeological excavation will take place to preserve historical artefacts from the site, which housed two 18th-century mills run by flax industry pioneer John Marshall.

CEG has also started marketing its development, which has detailed planning permission for two office blocks including 26,100m² of commercial and shopping space as well as outline consent for up to 750 homes and more than 100,000m² of office, retail, leisure, hotel, health, education and community facilities.

The 40-storey Globe Waterside residential block is expected to be taller on completion than Aedas’s existing 32-level Bridgewater Place Tower and BDP’s proposed 33-storey mixed-use ‘giant clamp’.

CEG said the scheme would also revitalise the approach to movement around the area, using a data-rich traffic micro-simulation model of the city centre highway network.

CEG’s head of strategic development north, David Hodgson, said: ‘Many years of hard work are being realised as we launch to market an exceptional opportunity for the highest quality office developments just minutes from Leeds City Station.

‘This, along with the retail, leisure, hotel, residential and community uses, benefiting from innovative outdoor spaces and the waterfront, will bring a strategic development of a critical mass and international standard, putting South Bank Leeds on the map as a place to live, work and enjoy.’
