York developer to deliver 345 new rental homes with Leeds residential scheme
A York-based development company has been given the green light for a new residential development in Leeds city centre.
S Harrison is set to create 345 new apartments for the private rented sector (PRS) in the heart of the city.
The development see four buildings, ranging from seven to nine storeys, built on two parcels of vacant land between East Street and Ellerby Road.
Designed by Leeds architecture practice Carey Jones Chapman Tolcher, the development will offer a range of one, two and three bedroom apartments, complete with car parking and cycle storage facilities, as well as residents’ facilities and commercial space.
Gavin Douglas, from S Harrison, commented: “The scheme is specifically designed to frame the view of the Grade I listed St Saviour’s Church from East Street and will be formed around a central courtyard and amenity space.
“It will offer a wide mix of apartments, including three bedroom homes that will appeal to families and those wanting to share an apartment, as well as improving pedestrian access around the site. A new pedestrian crossing on East Street will also significantly benefit this part of Leeds.
“Crucially, it will also form the final phase of regeneration that has transformed this part of East Street in recent years, on a brownfield site that has been allocated for residential development in the Aire Valley Leeds Area Action Plan for many years.”
