Consent secured for 150 apartments in 16-storey tower

Planners have given a green light for 150 new apartments in Leeds.

Manchester and Leeds-based planning, project management & cost management consultancy, Zerum, has secured permission for the 16-storey building.

The property will be located in the emerging South Bank area, close to the new City Park, the Climate Innovation District and the Guiness Development.

It will feature a mix of one, two and three-bedroom homes, along with on-site amenities for the residents.

Tom Cook, divisional director at Zerum, said: “We’re delighted with this outcome. This development further strengthens the South Bank of Leeds, which is an exciting part of the city.

“To secure this permission by delegated powers demonstrates the strength of the working relationship we and the team have with the council.”

John King, of King & Co, added: “Zerum have provided our planning advice for a number of years, and the strength of our relationship was such that we were able to identify the potential of this former industrial site and bring it forward quickly for a major residential development in a short period of time.”

Work is set to start on the scheme in mid to late 2023. Zerum acted as planning consultants, NBA as architects, Weetwood as drainage engineers and Mosodi as transport consultants.
