Transforming the South Bank
As part of the transformation of the South Bank in Leeds, award-winning Vastint UK is delivering a major new destination at the former Brewery Site. This will bring new homes, offices and cafés & restaurants; attracting investment into the city and creating new jobs in the area.
The scheme also delivers a major proportion of a new city park for the South Bank which will be the biggest green space the city centre has ever seen. It is intended that the Park will ultimately link to the River Aire, providing important amenity in this urban location and enhancing the value of neighbouring areas. It will improve connections from the north to the south, minimising the need to travel by car by creating dedicated pedestrian and cycle routes for safe access through the heart of the city.
The destination will:
Build up to 1,350 new homes, a mix of studios, one, two and three bedroom accommodation
Provide up to approx. 90,000 Sq M of new office accommodation, with an anticipated 6,000 people will be employed here
Deliver up to 15,000 Sq M active uses including retail, (A1-5), cultural, educational, leisure or health (C2, D1,D2).
Deliver two new hotels providing up to 400 guest rooms and ancillary facilities
Deliver over 3.5 hectares city park including a dedicated 2,000 Sq M of outdoor event space, 600 Sq M of play space for families and a new and enhanced public realm.
