Plans have been outlined for another 170 apartments on the South Bank, in Leeds.

Bankfoot APAM on behalf of site owners, NPV Leeds Ltd, is proposing homes for rent on the site of Zurich House, off Water Lane. 

Its plans include apartments, ranging in size from studios to one, two and three-bedroom units.

There would also be communal amenities for residents, as well as landscaping works and a roof garden.

In line with sustainability ambitions, the development will be car-free excluding accessible parking. Cycle parking will be included.

Emily Myers, senior development manager for Bankfoot APAM, said: “We would encourage as many people as possible to take part in the consultation, to let us know what they think about the plans. 

“We aim to provide high-quality new homes in Leeds to allow a broad mix of people to enjoy city living and all Leeds has to offer.”

Bankfoot APAM notes the existing building on the site is currently underutilised, with city centre businesses preferring purpose-built office space nearby.

It explains that if proposals are approved, the existing building would be demolished and the site redeveloped. 

Site neighbours will receive a letter regarding the plans and public consultation details can be found at www.zurich-house.co.uk    

Following the public consultation process a planning application will be submitted to Leeds City Council.
