£180m development proposal put forward to revitalise Leeds’ Globe Road
Plans for a £180m residential development to regenerate the South Bank area of Leeds have been submitted to the city’s council.
The investors behind build-to-rent operator Get Living have put forward the proposal, which would see Globe Road transformed into a five-acre neighbourhood.
Comprising 783 new homes including family townhouses, studios, 1, 2, and 3-bedroom apartments, the site would also feature a tree-lined canalside public space as well as room for commercial developments.
Rick de Blaby, executive chairman for Get Living, commented: “A neighbourhood of this scale commits us fully to the long-term growth and success of Leeds and our role will see us working alongside the Council and its own ambitious plans for the city.
If the plans are successful, construction on the project could begin as early as the end of 2019.
Rick continued: “We’re particularly excited that proposal would see us opening up the site to the waterfront and creating new public routes along this stretch of the canalside. This area to the south of the River Aire and the canal could be totally transformed with the introduction of modern, mid-market, safe homes in an attractive waterfront location.”
“We commit to our neighbourhoods for the long term, building vibrant, safe and well-managed places to live. We are committed to bringing this neighbourhood-focused approach to Leeds.”
