Planning permission secured for Leeds 260 home development
Planning permission has been granted for the construction of a 260 home residential development in Leeds.
CBRE, which is based in the US, has secured planning consent for Artisan Real Estate’s redevelopment of Kirkstall Place, the former Kirkstall District Centre.
The project will deliver more than 260 homes and will provide a small-scale commercial unit for retail or co-working office space.
Clive Wilding, property director at Artisan Real Estate, commented: “It’s fantastic news that we’ve been given approval for our plans for the Kirkstall Place development.
“We look forward to delivering much needed housing on this key regeneration site in Kirkstall that has stood vacant for so many years.
“We hope the development will be a catalyst for the ongoing regeneration of Kirkstall by connecting the surrounding communities”.
Alison Mackay, senior planner at CBRE’s Leeds office, added: “CBRE is delighted to have secured a resolution to grant planning for the Kirkstall Place development on behalf of Artisan Real Estate and its investors for this key regeneration site in the heart of Kirkstall.
“The scheme will deliver much needed housing on a sustainable site within a high-quality landscape setting making best use of the challenging levels through innovative design.
“The project team, including Axis Architecture, Fore consulting and Oobe Landscape Architects, worked closely with Leeds City Council to develop the scheme which will provide a mix of residential accommodation in a very sustainable development location.”
