The Sheppard Robson-designed scheme includes residents’ amenities set across the ground and first floor with expansive terrace gardens overlooking the River Aire.

“Whitehall Riverside represents one of the best residential development opportunities in Leeds city centre. We have a strong track record of successfully delivering high quality and sustainable new homes and have worked closely with TCS to bring this site forward to planning stage." said, Danny Roberts, senior development manager at Glenbrook.

"The residential building is a key component of the wider masterplan and will have a transformative impact on this significant stretch of riverside benefitting residents, visitors and the wider community.”

The wider masterplan by Enjoy Design includes detailed proposals for a 118,165 sq ft office building, and a multi-storey car park for CitiPark.

The car park aims to create one the largest EV charging sites in the north of the UK using renewable and sustainable electricity.

A further two buildings are proposed as future phases which include an aparthotel and additional office accommodation.

TCS has owned the site for a number of years. It worked closely with Leeds City Council to bring forward the initial phases of No.1 Whitehall Riverside office building, Whitehall Waterfront apartments, and, most recently, the Premier Inn which was completed in 2017.
