CBRE’s planning team in Leeds has secured planning consent for Artisan Real Estate for the redevelopment of Kirkstall Place, the former Kirkstall District Centre, for a major residential development.
The scheme will deliver more than 260 homes and will provide a small-scale commercial unit for retail or co-working office space. The development will provide a mix of housing, including 80 family town houses and 183 apartments providing one, two, three and four-bedroom accommodation.
Set within a high-quality landscape environment providing amenity green space and new pedestrian routes, the scheme will link the site with surrounding areas of Kirkstall.
Kirkstall Place will provide a new residential community in the heart of Kirkstall in what is a highly sustainable location, providing access to a wide variety of local services and amenities, including Kirkstall Abbey and the Leeds-Liverpool Canal.
Clive Wilding, property director from Artisan Real Estate, said: “It’s fantastic news that we’ve been given approval for our plans for the Kirkstall Place development.
“We look forward to delivering much needed housing on this key regeneration site in Kirkstall that has stood vacant for so many years. We hope the development will be a catalyst for the ongoing regeneration of Kirkstall by connecting the surrounding communities”.
Alison Mackay, senior planner at CBRE’s Leeds office, said: “CBRE is delighted to have secured a resolution to grant planning for the Kirkstall Place development on behalf of Artisan Real Estate and its investors for this key regeneration site in the heart of Kirkstall.
“The scheme will deliver much needed housing on a sustainable site within a high-quality landscape setting making best use of the challenging levels through innovative design.
“The project team, including Axis Architecture, Fore consulting and Oobe Landscape Architects, worked closely with Leeds City Council to develop the scheme which will provide a mix of residential accommodation in a very sustainable development location.”
