A £350m development at Leeds’ South Bank, which will include a 40-storey residential tower, moved forward this week with the start of demolition work. Leeds-based Sirius has been appointed to manage the six-week demolition of a warehouse on Water Lane. A six-month programme of archaeological excavation to record previously identified remains on the site will follow the demolition work.
The area housed industrialist John Marshall’s first two mills in this area of Holbeck in the eighteenth century and has witnessed significant redevelopment over the last century.
CEG has also invested £300,000 into securing the grade two-listed bridge which formed a historic route for the Marshall empire and will once again form a physical link over Holbeck, connecting Water Lane and Marshall Street to CEG’s new development at Globe Road. This, together with five other bridge crossings, will create links between the city, the wider South Bank area and existing local communities. CEG is already marketing its South Bank development, which has detailed planning permission for two office developments with ground floor retail and leisure totalling up to 280,000 sq ft. It also has outline planning permission for mixed-use development of up to 1.1m sq ft of offices, retail, leisure, hotel, health and community uses, parking and up to 750 new homes, along with new public spaces and landscaping.
Jon Kenny, strategic development director of CEG, said: “This is an exceptional opportunity to breathe life back into these, creating locally and nationally important iconic landmark buildings and innovative public spaces. “This is not just about building on a historic legacy; it is about creating a new one.”
