Leeds announces plans to double the size of the city centre

Leeds City Council announced last week that they plan to double the size of the city centre with the development of 16,500 new homes, which will be the country’s largest sustainable housing development to date.

Speaking at the renowned property event MIPIM, the council laid out their plans for the regeneration of South Bank Leeds with the construction of a massive 8,000 homes, which in turn will double the size and economic output of the city. In total, this investment should create more than 35,000 local jobs- which is a massive bonus for the region.

A big part of the project is construction company CEG who announced their plans to build a £350m residential building- Yorkshire’s largest, which will create 750 homes, offices, shops, bars and restaurants.

At Mone Bros, we were delighted to hear the news that Leeds City Council presented this month to expand Leeds, a fantastic city with amazing potential. We work regularly with Leeds City Council, as well as other leading companies who have impacted the Leeds and surrounding Yorkshire region such as Carillion, Persimmion Homes, Clegg Group and Morrison Utility Service.
