A £350m redevelopment as part of Leeds’ South Bank has passed its final planning hurdle after developer CEG and the city council agreed a section 106 agreement.
The plans, which had been given planning approval in April, will deliver up to 750 homes as well as 103,900 sq m of offices, retail and leisure amenities on the 2.4 ha site off Globe Road.
The regeneration plans include a 40-storey tower as well as the restoration of the Grade I-listed Temple Works building and the Grade II bridge over Hol Beck, which will connect Water Lane and Marshall Street to the new development at Globe Road.
CEG head of strategic development north David Hodgson said: “Many years of hard work are being realised as we launch to market an exceptional opportunity for the highest-quality office developments just minutes from Leeds station.
“This, along with the retail, leisure, hotel, residential and community uses, benefiting from innovative outdoor spaces and the waterfront, will [put] South Bank Leeds on the map as a place to live, work and enjoy.”

The wider South Bank regeneration area covers 253 ha south of the River Aire in Leeds.
It is set to double the size of Leeds city centre, providing more than 35,000 jobs and 8,000 homes.
Last month developer X1 was granted planning for a £210m scheme designed by DK Architects, which includes 928 apartments spread across five blocks ranging from six to 20 storeys in height.
