Site with consent for more than 600 apartments is acquired

Developer Glenbrook has completed the acquisition of a 5.12-acre site at the edge of Leeds city centre from Marshall CDP for an undisclosed sum.

Located at a prominent position in 87-89 Kirkstall Road, the scheme has existing outline planning consent in place for 631 apartments and 10,000 sq ft of commercial accommodation.

Glenbrook says it is working with its design team to deliver purpose-built rental accommodation and will be submitting a reserved matters planning application for the site in the coming months.

Daniel Roberts, senior development manager at Glenbrook, said: “Leeds is a forward-thinking and dynamic city; this site is strategically very important and its redevelopment will help create an attractive walkway along the River Aire giving access to and from the city centre.

“Our plans will bring an exciting new BTR concept to the market with features including pocket parks and a host of amenities to complement the substantial public realm areas.”

CBRE advised Marshalls and Carrick Real Estate represented Glenbrook.
