£125m ‘eco village’ plan for Leeds



Plans have been unveiled for a huge £125m eco-village’ development in Leeds which could, it is hoped, make the city a pioneer in environmentally friendly urban regeneration.

Sustainable development company Citu has drawn together the blueprint for a Climate Innovation District to form part of the wider South Bank Leeds regeneration masterplan.

The plan includes more than 500 new low carbon homes alongside manufacturing, leisure, offices and “climate resilient” public realm.

The designs will be based on a model of “progressive” new neighbourhoods in Scandinavia, with input from a leading Swedish architect.

It is hoped the £125 million scheme - on 15 acres of brownfield land in the city’s former industrial heartlands - could become a key part of the city’s development plans for the South Bank, itself one of the largest, most ambitious city centre regeneration projects in Europe.

Chris Thompson, managing director and founder of Citu, said: “We are hugely excited to be launching what we expect will be a catalyst for the industry to help our cities transition towards being zero carbon.

“This is the biggest challenge of our generation and we need a step change in the way we develop our cities to reduce energy consumption in buildings and transport. We can make this into a viable economic model by using the latest technology and innovation from across the world.”

“The Climate Innovation District, and in particular South Bank Leeds, presents an enormous opportunity for Leeds to be the first city in the UK, and possibly Europe, to create an ecologically pioneering district of this scale.”

Councillor Judith Blake, leader of Leeds City Council, said: “We very much welcome Citu’s investment in South Bank Leeds and their ambition to create a Climate Innovation District.

“As well as providing sustainable and affordable housing with great new outdoor spaces that will bring families back into the centre of the city, the project will also offer job opportunities for local people. “We look forward to watching the development take shape.”

Citu will be releasing further details about the development in late 2016, with the first residents to occupy homes from early 2017, and final completion by 2022.

Work begins on Citu’s £125m Climate Innovation District in Leeds



Work has commenced on the first phase of Citu’s £125m Climate Innovation District, a new sustainable neighbourhood in the centre of South Bank Leeds.

Located on six acres of brownfield land, off East Street and South Accommodation Road, this phase will include 150 energy-efficient timber frame houses and 162 apartments.

The first phase of development has been launched with the help of a £7.7m loan from the RIF, a fund established by a partnership of seven Yorkshire local authorities that aims to support projects which accelerate economic growth and job creation in the Leeds City Region, in a deal secured by Leeds-based legal advisors Squire Patton Boggs.

The residential scheme, located on the south bank of the River Aire, will feature one and two-bedroom apartments and three and four-bedroom zero-carbon homes, designed around public open spaces.

The new homes will use up to 90% less energy for heating and will incorporate many green innovations including rainwater harvesting, solar power and smart technology which allows homeowners to control energy remotely via a desktop, tablet or smartphone.

The factory-made houses will be manufactured in the Climate Innovation District at Citu Works, a new manufacturing plant run by developer. The factory will allow every element of the environmentally-friendly timber frame homes to be designed and made in controlled conditions, meaning that heating bills and carbon emissions are a fraction of those of a conventional property.

Building contractor Sirius has started remediation work on site, with the first homes due for completion early 2017.

The sustainable developer started the work on site with Councillor Judith Blake, leader of Leeds City Council; Tom Riordan, chief executive of Leeds City Council and Roger Marsh, chair of the Leeds City Region Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) and representatives of the Leeds City Region Revolving Investment Fund (RIF).

Joanne Roney, chair of the RIF and chief executive of Wakefield Council, said: “The RIF is delighted to invest in this scheme. Being able to anticipate future market trends and provide loan funding for innovative projects such as this – that will provide economic, employment and environmental benefits across the region – is precisely why the Leeds City Region Revolving Investment Fund was established.”

Chris Thompson, director and founder of Citu, added: “With the support of the Council, the LEP and the RIF, we’re able to start on site with the initial phase of low-carbon homes and take that first step towards making the Climate Innovation District a reality.

“This area has long played a key role in Leeds’s history, once the heart of manufacturing in the city. It makes sense that it will now be home to a green revolution; a sustainable community where families, downsizers, singletons and couples can live in medium density neighbourhoods that are well designed, low energy and peppered with the necessary amenities to sustain a happy existence.”

Leader of Leeds City Council Councillor Judith Blake also commented: “We are very pleased to see this bold, ambitious and innovative development in South Bank Leeds being supported with the first approved loan from the Leeds City Region Revolving Investment Fund. This project fits perfectly with the regeneration ideals the fund is looking to encourage so we look forward to closely following its development in the coming months and years.”

Tower Works - A truly sustainable mixed use development
Client: Carillion Developments
Location: Leeds, West Yorkshire


OOBE are working with Carillion Developments and Jestico + Whiles on Tower Works, a truly sustainable mixed used development providing a high‐quality living and working environment in the heart of Leeds city centre.

The former industrial site on the Leeds‐Liverpool canal forms an important part of the Leeds skyline, with its listed Verona Tower, Giotto Tower and the Little Chimney which give the site its name. The competition‐winning design balances high quality contemporary design with these existing heritage structures to provide a mixed‐use sustainable community with a distinctive sense of place.

The public realm, which takes up half the site area, sets the towers within an elegant masterplan that responds to the urban character of Holbeck, characterized by small intimate cobbled courtyards and connections through the former industrial landscape. The masterplan provides the flexibility required to respond to the multiple uses on site, with a strong inside outside connection that allows for internal functions to extend outdoors. A large public square is proposed at the heart of the development, connected to a network of smaller and more intimate spaces.

The site offers a fantastic opportunity to improve connectivity between the city centre, train station south entrance and neighbouring communities, and increase the amenity and ecological potential of the surrounding water bodies.

INVESTMENT SECURED FOR £80M TOWER WORKS SCHEME
15th Feb 2016

An investment partner has been unveiled for the £80m Tower Works regeneration scheme in Leeds which secured planning permission last week.

Richardsons Capital has come on board as sole investment partner, paving the way for a start on site in late spring.

Tower Works is a mixed-use development of 90,000 sq ft of commercial office space, 16,000 sq ft of retail restaurant and bar spaces alongside a mix of residential accommodation and town houses.
Central to the proposal is a cultural offer which converts the grade II listed Engine House into a cinema and boutique brewery, and a new public piazza designed to link Holbeck Urban Village to the Leeds Liverpool canal and the new southern entrance to Leeds train station at Granary Wharf.

Carillion was appointed by the Homes and Communities Agency to bring the scheme forward and was granted unanimous planning permission for the South Bank project last week.

Ben Holmes, from Richardson Capital, said: "We see significant potential for investing in the future prosperity of Leeds. Tower Works will contribute to the city's homes, job creation and infrastructure, and continues Richardson Capital’s proven relationship with Carillion.”

Carillion's Gareth Jackson added: "Richardson Capital’s commitment to this project underlines the confidence our team has in Holbeck Urban Village and our commitment to beginning this transformation at the heart of the city’s South Bank."

In November 2015, British fashion house Burberry announced that it will move its operations to the listed Temple Works site, bolstering the credentials of Holbeck Urban Village as a place for both creativity and business.

Tower Works is being designed by architects' practice Jestico + Whiles, landscape architects' firm Oobe and engineering consultancy WSP. Planning consultancy services for the project have been managed by England & Lyle, cost consultancy advice by Sweetts and project management services by DBK.

Commercial agents Knight Frank and Sanderson Wetherall have been appointed alongside residential agents CRBE and Morgans, and retail and leisure agents Pudney Shuttleworth.

Construction is expected to complete in 2020.

Opening date unveiled for brand new deluxe Leeds city centre hotel

On Monday 1st May, the Dakota Deluxe Leeds will officially open.

This new hotel forms a major part of Evans Property Group’s £25m investment into rejuvenating the Bond Court area of Leeds city centre.

Leeds’ newest luxury boutique hotel is the fourth for the independently owned Dakota Group. The project has been spearheaded by Ken McCulloch, who founded Malmaison Hotels, and delivered in partnership with Leeds-based Evans Property Group.

Ken McCulloch said: “It is great being back in Leeds and it’s time that Leeds had a luxury hotel because the city deserves it”.

Situated between Russell and Greek Streets, the hotel was designed by McCulloch’s creative team which was headed by international interior designer Amanda Rosa.

He added: “The majority of time spent working away from home is always grudged and so we wanted to create a very special experience.“

Dakota Deluxe introduces old-world hospitality to the business and leisure guest.

Dakota also features a new the Bar & Grill, which comprises a classically inspired menu with a collection of simple dishes prepared with an emphasis on fresh quality produce in a brasserie-style destination.

The hotel opening will also see the first unveiling of Salon Privé, an exclusive cocktail bar with a first-floor terrace overlooking Greek Street.

Additionally, extensive public realm and landscaping works amounting to around £1m have been undertaken in the Bond Court area, working with Leeds City Council to create a new destination.

Roderick Evans, managing director of Evans Property Group, commented: “Having worked with Dakota for over a decade now, we have formed a strong relationship and we are incredibly excited to be launching this destination hotel in our home city.“

Bond Court public realm work completes



Extensive public realm works at Bond Court in Leeds have completed following a £1m investment by Evans Property Group, with the project carried out in partnership with Leeds City Council.

Works have included new trees, planters, granite paving, floor lighting and the opening up of key walking routes. The carriageway on Russell Street has been repaved in granite, giving Bond Court a large public square, which is available for lunch, evening and weekend outdoor trading for the neighbouring leisure operators.

Evans has played a major part in transforming Bond Court, including with the new 84-bedroom five-star Dakota Deluxe hotel, developed in partnership with boutique hotelier Ken McCulloch.

In addition to the public realm works, Evans has invested in the upgrading of two major office buildings, Minerva and Capitol, creating more than 50,000 sq ft of grade A accommodation.

Evans has also attracted restaurant operators, Tattu and Manahatta, into redeveloped units with outside terraces beneath Minerva, as well as agreeing an extension to Living Venture's Blackhouse Bar & Grill.

Alan Syers, portfolio director at Evans Property Group, said: "It has been incredibly rewarding to work alongside Leeds City Council to bring back to life this public space, which provides important pedestrian links between the traditional office and retail/leisure cores of the city centre.

"Creating an attractive and stylish new square was a key part in the broader regeneration of Bond Court and the works have transformed the space into a thriving, vibrant, and appealing city centre destination."

Cllr Richard Lewis, Leeds City Council's executive member for regeneration, transport and planning, added: "This latest phase of the redevelopment of Bond Court has been delivered in partnership with Evans of Leeds and we are pleased to have been able to secure private sector funding to deliver this scheme.

"This scheme, together with the construction of a new hotel and refurbishment of adjacent office premises, underlines the economic confidence in this part of the city centre."

Plans for brewery site redevelopment to support 6,500 jobs



Plans have been lodged for the redevelopment of the former Tetley Brewery site in Leeds. A mixed-use scheme with the capacity to support about 6,500 jobs is envisaged featuring landmark buildings, hotels, homes, shops, restaurants and offices alongside a new city park.

Prepared by GL Hearn on behalf of Vastint Leeds, an outline application has been submitted which the developer hopes will create a new urban quarter or neighbourhood within the South Bank area of the city.

Included within the plans is space for up to 850 residential units and 915,000 sq ft of business floorspace which it is thought could support 5,720 jobs.

There is also 161,500 sq ft set aside for uses including shops, restaurants, bars and take-aways as well as accommodation for financial and professional service providers.

Among other eye-catching elements is the provision for two hotels with a total of 400 beds and a five-acre city park centred around The Tetley and framed by mixed use, commercial and residential buildings with active ground floor uses.

A landmark hotel building is pencilled in for the junction of Great Wilson Street and Meadow Lane, a key approach route to Leeds city centre from the south as well as in a visible location from the proposed HS2 station.

Continuing with the tall building theme, two residential towers are included at the junction of Crown Point Road and Waterloo Street.

A further pair of residential towers are lined up between the two areas of City Park.

According to a report prepared by Surface Property, the proposed development will consist of buildings with heights ranging from 13 metres to 119.7 metres. At 112 metres, Bridgewater Place is currently the tallest skyscraper in Leeds.

For City Park, the overall concept is for the provision of a series of related spaces which will all take on the atmosphere and character of one whole park.

The main components of the park will be the Central Park, the Tetley Triangle and the North Park as well as the Commercial Square in the south west. Greened linkways will join these major spaces together and the two main streets running through the built areas of the proposal will comprise tree-lined avenues. The proposed Tetley Triangle lies in the north of the proposal site and is approached from Leeds Bridge.

To make way for the development some existing buildings will be demolished. They include a five-storey office building occupied by Carlsberg UK known as Tetley House, the former Gatehouse (adjacent to The Tetley) and the ASDA MCE warehouse building. In addition the boundary walls which form a barrier to the integration of the site with the remainder of the city centre will also be demolished on a phased basis.

The application site extends to 24 acres including surrounding highways.

According to Vastint, the proposals will drive significant regeneration benefits and maximise the accessibility the site enjoys by creating strong links into the city centre, Leeds Station, the new HS2 terminal and then to the east and south to existing and new communities around Leeds Dock, Hunslet and Beeston.

Other professionals working on the scheme include architectural practice ARC-ML, BWB Consulting, Peter Brett Consulting and FFLO.

At its height in the 1960s, the brewery site employed 1,000 workers and by the 1980s was the world's largest producer of cask ale.

In 1998 Tetley was taken over by Carlsberg and the Leeds brewery was closed in 2011 and demolished the following year.

The headquarters building now houses a contemporary art and learning centre.
