A former office building on 87-89 Kirkstall Road in Leeds has been brought to market by CBRE’s UK Development and Residential team for Elland-based Marshalls.
The development opportunity, situated on a 5.12 acre site one mile west of Leeds City Centre, has outline planning consent for up to 631 residential apartments with more than 10,000 sq ft of commercial space to serve the local community.
The redundant office building spans over two and three storeys and includes parking and additional adjacent land with the main building located to the north, fronting Kirkstall Road and the site also fronts the River Aire.
Outline planning is in place for the redevelopment of the site of up to 631 apartments comprising one, two and three beds with more than 10,000 sq ft of ground floor, flexible commercial space spanning over five units. The site benefits from a wealth of nearby amenities including shops, restaurants and medical and leisure facilities, as well as being close to a number of local schools, colleges and five Universities, including top 10 ranked Leeds University.
Green open public space and areas of natural beauty surround the site including Armley Park, Kirkstall Valley Nature Reserve and Willow Field. The site is bordered by Kirkstall Road (A65) to the north with Nissan Leeds car dealership forming the easterly border. It has excellent connectivity both locally and nationally being close to the motorway network and Leeds Railway Station.
