Theres Brotherton House, INC, the Mclaren office, Wellington Place 2nd phase, YP site 2nd phase all within a stones throw. Thats not including the numerous sites the other side of the IRR ripe for development, of which there must be at least 10 with the casinos, car parks and various low rise buildings. There is so much development opportunity in this part of Leeds, but something needs to happen.

We aren't going to get a 125-150m glass tower when there is nothing else around it, those days are gone for me imo. Leeds and to some degree Manchester, is only seeing top end developments in already established parts of the city.
Yeh I’m curious to see which of those developments are high end developments? Is INC actually happening ? I’m not convinced in YP phase 2 as phase 1 is a horrendous clunk. I do like mclaren building. Interesting to see what they do with brotherton house. I do feel just 1 high quality glass tower at LCC’s favourite height of 33 Would do nicely though. Space is running out in the city boundaries with many many many… brick clad blocks

I don't know what's replacing it....yet, but INC is dead (probably never was going to happen, let's be honest. Never even got to a planning submission).

I might have more to reveal one day though!

yeah i think that Millgarth Tower was a KWL Development idea/scheme probably designed by ACME, and like CP & Lumiere (also KWL) it really could have been a proposal for Chicago or NYC. I've seen a tall similar sized building cladding - wise to it somewhere on here... it might have been a city in Australia.
I like the look of the purple (ceramic?) cladding on part of the 11 storey block in front of the tallest Lisbon Square tower when viewed from Park Place on the latest render

The colour change is an improvement for the building but it is still an abomination in that context. You change a colour slightly and suddenly you are allowed to build it? Frig off, developers.
