BDP’s design for a £160m world-class, mixed-use and housing development at the western gateway to Leeds city centre has been revealed.
The proposal for the 33 storey INC building for The Parklane Group includes a 198 unit aparthotel, 163 private apartments, 200 co-living apartments, over 2,000 sqm of co-working space, a bar and restaurant, swimming pool, gym and retail facilities.
The scheme is an inclusive, contemporary and flexible approach to living and working, and has the ambition to deliver a transformational space to visit, work, live and play under one roof.
Architect director Mike Hitchmough said: “Our client gave us an ambitious brief to create an inspirational place for people to come together and experience every aspect of their brand and hospitality. Whether you are staying in Leeds for a few days, a few months, seeking an apartment on a longer term basis or you’re looking for a flexible workplace, you can make this place your home. The building sits on the western approach to the city creating both a destination and landmark at a key gateway in to the city centre.”
Parklane Group Director, Naveen Ahmed, says: “INC in Leeds has been designed to be a city defining development, providing a step change in the PRS, co-working, hospitality and retail offer across the North of England. Our vision is formed around not only developing world class facilities but creating a lifestyle that fits the aspirations of the innovative and dynamic businesses and people in our city. This development will be the first of its kind in the UK and a concept that can be rolled out in other cities across the country and internationally.”
Further details about the scheme will be revealed at 4.30pm on 13 March on the Leeds Stand as part of the city’s delegation to MIPIM.
