Construction News Image
Plans have been submitted for a £65 million residential development in Leeds comprising 349 new 'build to rent' apartments.

The piazza-style development will include 18- and 22-storey tower blocks, along with a below ground level car park, community hub, refuse, cycle storage with a 'specialist' cycle facility, and amenity spaces.

Local contractor Torsion Developments is partnering with Court Collaboration on the project.

The new apartments will replace the former Alton Cars showroom site on Saxton Lane.

When complete, the environmentally friendly build will be made up of one, two and three-bed apartments.

Torsion Group Managing Director Gary Walton said: "Torsion is delighted to have been selected as the main contractor for the delivery of these two residential tower blocks in the heart of Leeds. Working In partnership with Court Collaboration we are currently delivering 225 luxury residential apartments in the heart of Birmingham city centre and are delighted to continue our collaborative working partnership. With our Head Office in Leeds, we are excited at the prospect of delivering this build to rent scheme and hope to commence work later this year."

Court Collaboration Managing Director Alex Neale added: "Urban growth in Leeds is amongst the strongest in the UK, and it's an area currently enjoying substantial investment and economic growth. That stimulus is creating significant demand for high-quality city centre living that this development aims to meet."

Planning consent is due at the end of May 2019 with a start on-site programmed for late summer 2019.

Leeds-based Architects Den Architecture and Structural Engineer CWA form part of Torsion's design team on the project.

The development is due for completion in late summer 2021.
