Developer Vastint UK has submitted plans to build 421 flats at its Aire Park development on the former Tetley Brewery site in Leeds.
Plans involve seven buildings, ranging in height from seven to 15 storeys at the corner of Crown Point Road and Bowman Lane.
Vastinct has also submitted proposals for a multistorey car park, which will serve the occupants of Aire Park’s new commercial developments.
This follows the successful completion of the first 200,000 sq ft of grade A office space and 20,000 sq ft of retail space on the site in February and the start on site of a new seven-storey, commercial building in May.
The latest application delivers the first homes at the site, on plots R2 and R3. These have been designed by Cartwright Pickard to reflect to the area’s industrial heritage.
The landscaping is designed to create a natural transition between the residential community and the new city park, which will become one of the largest new city centre parks in the UK.
Simon Schofield, head of development at Vastint UK, said: “Following the delivery of our first commercial and mixed-use buildings, this is the next major milestone in the future of Aire Park and we’re excited to be a step closer to our goal of creating a new and diverse community on Leeds’ south bank.
“These new homes will be the first of over 1,400 once Aire Park is complete, and will sympathetically balance modern urban design with accessible public spaces.
“As progress continues, we’re looking forward to seeing the Aire Park community grow and are keen to help it evolve and develop its own unique identity and place within the city.”
Projected to be fully complete in 2032, Aire Park will span 24 acres of the city’s South Bank, and is set to create a new district home to more than 11,000 workers and up to 3,000 residents.
