Leeds brownfield site earmarked for “unique” communal development
A Leeds brownfield site has been earmarked for a “unique” communal development as a public consultations launches.
The proposals for Mabgate Yard, on Mabgate in Leeds, are centred around a communal heart, acting as a focal point for residents to meet, relax and collaborate and the development will also benefit from landscaped outdoor areas and extensive planting.
Yorkshire-founded developer, HBD, have unveiled plans to regenerate the underutilised site and a virtual public consultation has been launched on proposals for approximately 310 high-quality studio, 1, 2 and 3 bed apartments as well as communal, co-working and creative space in one of Leeds’ most exciting neighbourhoods.
Located on a key gateway site, close to St James’s University Hospital and the city centre, each of the high-specification apartments will be available solely for rent, offering real choice to key workers and other members of the local community who are traditionally left behind by the rental market.
Richard Hinds, development surveyor at HBD, said: “We have developed plans for this site that we are proud of and feel the scheme complements the existing urban community. We’re excited to share the plans with the community and invite their feedback.
“As a hybrid planning application, with elements of the design still to decide, public consultation is vital and we are keen to know the thoughts of local residents and businesses.
“We will then be able to incorporate these ideas and opinions in our final planning applications.
“Leeds is one of the most exciting places in the UK to live and work and we are committed to bringing forward a scheme for this neighbourhood that we can all be proud of.
“We respect the unique character and history of Mabgate and believe these designs will sit well alongside existing buildings, but also help the area develop and grow.”
