Glenbrook and TCS submit Whitehall Riverside development planning to Leeds

Glenbrook and Town Center Securities PLC (TCS) have submitted planning applications for a £280m master plan for the Whitehall Riverside development in Leeds city center

The proposal includes 500 apartments for rent spread over two blocks of 15 and 18 floors with commercial spaces, resident amenities and terraced gardens.

The program designed by Sheppard Robson has a strong focus on sustainability as well as the health and well-being of residents.

The larger master plan, by Enjoy Design, includes a smart, energy-efficient 118,165 square foot office building, as well as a multi-storey parking lot and state-of-the-art travel center for CitiPark.

A series of interconnected green streets and cycle paths will improve connectivity and access to existing shorelines.

Two other buildings are proposed as future phases which include an aparthotel and additional offices.

“Best Residential Development Opportunities in Leeds City Centre”

Danny Roberts, Senior Development Manager at Glenbrook, said: “Whitehall Riverside represents one of the best opportunities for residential development in Leeds city centre.

“We have a strong track record of successfully delivering high quality, sustainable new homes and have worked closely with TCS to move this site through to the planning stage.

“The residential building is a key part of the wider master plan and will have a transformative impact on this significant stretch of shoreline for the benefit of residents, visitors and the wider community.”

Flexible and sustainable new homes

Craig Burrow, Director of Development at Town Center Securities, said:

“Whitehall Riverside’s new master plan has been designed for today’s demand, but with flexibility in mind to accommodate the changing demands of workspace, residences, electric vehicles and visitor economy.

“This will further enhance the phases already delivered and create a truly mixed-use program and neighborhood for generations to live, work and play.

“With connectivity and sustainability at the forefront of the design, the next phase will activate the unique stretch of waterfront frontage with high quality landscaping and public realm throughout.”
