In pictures: Trinity Leeds shopping centre near completion

Laing O’Rourke’s £350m shopping centre in the centre of Leeds is nearing completion, with 84 per cent of space already let.

Laing O’Rourke is main contractor on the project, which was employing 1,000 people at peak construction, alongside developer Land Securities and project consultants Sweett.

The site’s arresting glass roof design was completed in six weeks, and the project is due to complete on 21 March 2013.

The 1 million sq ft of development is anchored by Marks & Spencer and Primark, who will take 155,000 and 107,000 sq ft of space respectively.

Almost a quarter of the Trinity Leeds shopping centre, which expects to see half a million people passing through every week, will be dedicated to food and leisure. Once opened, an estimated 3,500 jobs are set to be created.

The city’s metropolitan population is 722,000, with more than 100,000 businesses in the city region.
