Sweet Street West is a multi-phased masterplan for the vacant former Kays Catalogue site in Holbeck, Leeds. DLG Architects were appointed by our Client, Platform_ (and their parent company Westrock) to develop the masterplan and take forward a hybrid planning application to deliver approximately 1,200 homes and 200,000sqft of office space alongside complimentary commercial and community spaces.

Our proposals for Sweet Street West look to create a new high-quality residential and commercial neighbourhood, set within a network of new publicly accessible open spaces. This is a development site with huge potential, firmly rooted within the established community of Holbeck.

The project has been progressing through pre-app plans panels and public consultations, and the intention is to submit for planning approval in early summer.
