We are delighted our scheme for Sweet Street West, Leeds, has been consented by Leeds City Council planning committee. This marks a major milestone in bringing forward this landmark new mixed-use masterplan in the heart of Leeds’ south bank regeneration area, for Build-to Rent (BTR) developer and operator PLATFORM_.
Signalling long-term investment in the region that represents a value of £500m, the development – set across eight acres – will accelerate the regeneration of the South Bank area by delivering a mixed-use quarter on a brownfield site which has been vacant since 2009. PLATFORM_ will now start enabling works alongside detailed design and a construction tender process for the first phase of the development, with the aim to start on site later in 2023.
Consent was given following a proactive and engaged process with the council and its members, which saw the proposals presented at Leeds Plans Panel three times for critical feedback. The site – which is owned freehold by PLATFORM_ – is under a ten-minute walk from Leeds Central rail station.
