More housing investment in Leeds set to transform the city


Leeds is on the cusp of a major boom with another new investment plan announced in the South Bank area of the city, attracting more people and investors to the up and coming area.

The city council has been working on the regeneration of the South Bank and Holbeck area of Leeds for some time now, with a number of exciting investments already announced, and now a further scheme from X1 Developments is set to add further fuel to the area.

The proposals include plans to create 928 new apartments, as well as commercial plots, car parking and public space across five buildings, which will range in size from six to 20 storeys at 123-125 Hunslet Road. The area recently received approval for the regeneration of an 8.69 acre site bringing 750 new homes plus office and retail space, restaurants and other amenities. Construction is set to start in December.

Breathing new life into the city

X1 Developments commented: “X1 South Bank, Leeds will bring forward the comprehensive regeneration of this prominent city centre to create a vibrant mixed use neighbourhood.

“It will provide a high quality, innovative and sustainable development which enhances the historic environment and delivers new jobs, services and homes to meet the needs of a growing city centre and a new resident population.”

The Leeds city region is already the fourth largest urban and metropolitan area in the UK, with an urban population density of 9,450 people per square kilometre, or 3,650 per square mile. With all the extra development and regeneration in store for the city, particularly in the emerging South Bank area, it is set to go from strength to strength as a major hub in the UK.

Melissa Green of X1 added: “The finished project will incorporate modern architecture, great places to live and vibrant commercial spaces – all gathered around a high quality public realm.

“It’s an exciting project, which we expect the whole area to benefit from, enhancing the city’s growing reputation and breathing new life into this currently vacant site.”
