Go ahead given for next phase of flagship mixed-use development

Town Centre Securities PLC (TCS), has secured planning consent for the next stages of its mixed-use Whitehall Riverside development site in Leeds.

It includes two office buildings, a 478 space CitiPark car park and a hotel/aparthotel.

The plan forms part of the wider regeneration of the strategically located riverside scheme and could see up to 235,000 sq ft of Grade A, smart and energy efficient office space along with the multi storey car park and travel hub with renewable energy facility.

The residential component of the masterplan, which is being delivered by Glenbrook and Legal & General, recently began on site and will provide 500 new homes when finished.

Craig Burrow, group property director, TCS said: “After a lengthy process we are pleased to reach this milestone in the project and secure detailed and outline planning consent for the remaining plots.

“Our masterplan has been designed for modern needs, but with flexibility front of mind to adapt to the changing requirements of workspace, residential, electric vehicles, and the visitor economy.

“It will deliver a truly mixed-use scheme and a unique neighbourhood in the West End of the city which is now enjoying increased activity and development.”

Ben Ziff, managing director of CitiPark and TCS board director, added: “As one of the UK’s leading providers of EV charging technology, we are excited to be bringing forward this pioneering, cutting-edge CitiPark multi-storey car park, travel hub and a renewable power facility, and are aiming to progress this early next year.

“This newest and most innovative branch will have the capacity to be the largest EV charging hub in the North of England.

“We are confident this will not only enhance visual impact to this key route into the city, but provide a future proof, sustainable building with value in mind for residents, commuters, and visitors to the great city of Leeds.”
