Property developer acquires four-acre “flagship” Leeds site

Leeds based Stamford Property Holdings and Shelborn Asset Management have bought the “prime” Westbank site in Leeds from Lloyds Bank.

The purchaser was represented by Knight Frank, while the vendor was represented by CBRE and JLL.

The four-acre site, located next to the iconic Bridgewater Place and a few minutes from Leeds Station, currently houses a three-storey call centre office building with 117 car parking spaces.

Eamon Fox, partner and Head of Office Agency at Knight Frank in Leeds, commented: “This is the best development site to be offered to the market this year in the flourishing city of Leeds – bar none, thanks to its size and location. This is tremendous news for the city.

“Leeds has seen significant regeneration over the past decade and the planned redevelopment of the South Bank will double the size of Leeds city centre in the next ten years.”

Uri Goldberg, director at Stamford Property Holdings, commented: “We are delighted to be partnering with Shelborn on this exciting redevelopment opportunity. We look forward to working collaboratively with Leeds City Council to deliver a world class mixed use scheme with excellent environmental credentials at its core.”

Josh Morris, investment partner with Knight Frank in London, added: “We are pleased to have acted on behalf of Stamford and Shelborn on their purchase of Westbank, Leeds. The transaction represented an unrivalled opportunity to acquire a flagship site in the heart of Leeds’ major regeneration hub and to be part of the creation of a new community in the city.

“Leeds offers a diverse and robust economy, home to 20 FTSE 100 companies, over 100,000 students and a workforce of 1.9m people. A major commercial and financial centre for Yorkshire and the North East of England, investment into the city remains strong and confidence is high.”
