Plans for £300m Leeds resi-led scheme
Developer Residential Securities has submitted plans to regenerate the former Yorkshire Chemicals site in Leeds with a major residential-led scheme.
The rectangular site, known as City Reach, has been empty for several years after all buildings were demolished and backs onto the River Aire offering a major gateway into west Leeds.
Residential Securities is proposing to build up to 1m sq ft, offering a mix of homes in several new blocks ranging from 7 to 14 floors.
This will house 574 private rental homes, over 200 homes for sale and 234 student rooms with an extra 20,000sq ft of commercial space at ground floor level.
The proposals will also incorporate new areas of public realm and a pedestrian bridge link over the river.
Residential Securities develops and operates residential-led regeneration schemes throughout the UK including Merchant City in Glasgow, Heaps Rice Mill in Liverpool, 10 Whitworth Street in Manchester.
