Leeds property developer submits plans for "tallest building in Yorkshire"
A Leeds property developer has announced that it has submitted plans to build the tallest building in Yorkshire.
Citylife has submitted plans for its Two Springwell Gardens development in Leeds city centre, which will be 46 storeys and 142m tall.
Two Springwell Gardens will have a gross development value of £175m and will surpass the county’s current tallest building, Bridgewater Place, also in Leeds, which stands at 112m.
Designed by Nick Brown Architects and set to be located on the corner of Springwell Road and Whitehall Road, the scheme sits between MEPC’s Wellington Place commercial and leisure development and CEG’s £350m Southbank development.
The proposed scheme is adjacent to Citylife’s currently under construction 16 storey One Springwell Gardens development.
Citylife director, Antony Georgallis, said: “We are very pleased to submit our plans to further create a vibrant and sustainable community on Whitehall Road.
“We would like to thank Leeds City Council for working with us and to help develop our vision for the site as part of the planning process.
“Two Springwell Gardens has a bold visual identity thanks to a distinctive sail-like façade.
“By being brave with our design, if planning is granted, we will contribute towards a new skyline for the city.
“In addition, we will deliver vertical sky gardens, high specification apartments, private roof terraces and courtyards which will combine to deliver a powerful sense of place and community.
“We work closely with Michael, Mark and the Gordons team on all aspects of our residential development requirements.
“We are always provided with fast, effective, commercial advice, no matter who we deal with at the firm.”
