Construction milestone reached at 11-storey apartment scheme

Contractor Clegg Construction has held a topping out ceremony at an 11-storey apartment complex being built for property developer Rise Homes, in Leeds.

Spinners Yard is a 185-apartment build-to-rent scheme in Regent Street in the Mabgate area of Leeds city centre.

It is the second build-to-rent project Clegg Construction has undertaken in partnership with Rise Homes and follows the recent completion of The Ironworks – a £28.7m, 11-storey apartment development in Sheffield.

Featuring a mix of studio, one, two and three-bedroom apartments, Spinners Yard is due to be completed in 2025.

Clegg Construction operations director, Darren Chapman, said: “We are very pleased to have reached the key topping out stage for this development.

“This will allow us to continue adding the external walls and glazing up the building, followed by the internal fit-out.

“Spinners Yard is regenerating brownfield land and will breathe new life into the area, providing a desirable residential development with a range of properties to rent.”

The ground floor of Spinners Yard will incorporate an entrance lobby and reception, the centre management office, a lounge, work spaces, and a gym.

On the first floor there will be a residents’ garden space, with another roof garden on the 10th floor.

Once completed, the development will feed into the Leeds PIPES District Heat Network.

Nigel Rawlings, CEO of Rise Homes, added: “We are very much looking forward to the completion of this sustainable development linked to the Leeds City energy from waste plant, offering high-quality, spacious apartments at both affordable and market rents featuring many other environmental benefits.”
