A new district is set to further transform South Bank in Leeds


Temple, a new district forming in Leeds city centre, will bring more jobs, homes, leisure facilities, restaurants and bars to South Bank.

Located in the thriving neighbourhood of South Bank in Leeds, Temple is an 8.9-acre district near Water Lane and Globe Road. The area is set to see much regeneration and investment with more job opportunities and new homes coming to the area, which is likely to attract more investors and renters.

When the scheme for Temple was launched at a gathering last month, the leader of Leeds City Council, Councillor Judith Blake, talked about South Bank and the new district: “By unlocking the massive economic potential of this historic area, we can double the size of our city centre, connect our communities, bring thousands of new jobs and opportunities to Leeds and create a diverse and vibrant new hub for people of all ages and abilities.

“The Temple area will be a pivotal part of this ambition, bringing together the best of Leeds’s storied industrial heritage with modern, state-of-the-art design and innovation.”

The Temple district includes the grade one listed Temple Mill, which is currently disused. These developments will bring a new district to the city centre and play an important role in regenerating this area of Leeds.

Planning permission granted for variety of developments

As BAM Construction is set to build phase one of the £350m developments, Temple will include a new 38,000 sq ft office building that will also be home to retail and leisure on the ground floor. The building is set to start being built in early 2020 after detailed design work is approved. Another office building has received detailed planning permission for 138,168 sq ft of office space and additional retail and leisure offerings.

On top of that, developer CEG has outline planning permission for further developments of up to 1.1million sq ft of offices, shops, cafes, restaurants, bars, a hotel and up to 750 new homes. These developments will bring new places to live and work, leisure facilities and a variety of businesses in the retail and food industry.

Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios, Stirling prize winning architects, is working together with CEG to masterplan Temple. Green spaces and outdoor plazas will be an integral part of the district, making it an area for people to enjoy living, working and visiting.

South Bank investment and regeneration

As Leeds City Council’s regeneration framework continues to transform South Bank, further investment and regeneration is set to come to this strategic area of Leeds. It was even recently named one of the best neighbourhoods in Europe. With close proximity to jobs and transportation options, South Bank is an especially appealing place to live for young professionals with a number of new flats in the neighbourhood.

Located right in South Bank, Arthur’s Fold is a development that will feature 101 apartments, in addition to a cinema, lounge and gym. Arthur’s Fold is set to benefit from the significant investment and increased employment opportunities across South Bank, making it an especially exciting investment opportunity with BuyAssociation.
