Plans in for Leeds 35-storey student tower

Developer Town Centre Securities has unveiled the next phase of redevelopment plans for the Merrion Centre in Leeds.

The developer plans to introduce student housing in a landmark tower and associated second building at Yorkshire’s iconic 1m sq ft mixed-used scheme.

This major project will see the conversion of the 13-storey Wade House, a 1960’s vacant office building, and a new 35-storey tower built on the site of 100MC, previously granted consent for an office project.

These buildings will deliver 1,110 student bedrooms, comprising a range of studios and cluster bedrooms, alongside co-working spaces, meeting spaces, cinema, gym and external terraces.

Edward Ziff, chairman and chief executive of TCS, said: “We have identified significant untapped potential within our Merrion estate, strategically positioning it for future growth.

“We are delighted to submit this crucial planning application which signifies the commencement of our upcoming strategy for the Merrion Centre.

“Our dedication to investing in and enhancing this mixed-use city centre destination is resolute, and we are excited to embark on this next phase of development.”
