Planning application submitted for £350m Leeds development

Property developer CEG has submitted a hybrid planning application for a £350m development on an 8.69-acre site in South Bank near to the new southern entrance to Leeds City station.

The application seeks detailed planning permission for two office developments with ground-floor retail and leisure totalling up to 26,100 sq m and outline planning permission for a mixed-use development of up to 103,900 sq m of offices, retail, leisure, hotel, health, education and community uses.

The application includes plans for parking and up to 750 new homes, along with new public spaces and landscaping.

CEG is working alongside architects Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios.

“The CEG team has long identified with the truly unique characteristic of the South Bank area of the city as a place to create an exceptional living and working environment; one rich in history and architectural gems waiting to be reinvigorated,” said Jon Kenny, development director at CEG.

“This is a derelict site where we can deliver a vibrant mixed-use strategic development of a critical mass and international quality that can enable this regeneration area to become a true gateway into the city, reconnecting local communities.”

The South Bank area of Leeds could potentially double the size of Leeds city centre, creating 35,000 new jobs and thousands of new homes as part of a distinctive destination for investment, living, learning, creativity and leisure.
