Head of Leeds City Councils city plans panel Jim McKenna said: It will provide a range of new housing options and public realm improvements to transform this area of the city centre in an attractive, modern and imaginative way.
The 16-acre Brewery Site development, which is set to include 850 homes, hotel facilities with around 400 rooms and a five-acre urban park, was granted outline planning permission by Leeds City Council planners back in December.
Coun James McKenna, the head of the councils city plans panel, said in December: Its hugely exciting. We are one of the few cities in the UK that does not have a large inner-city park this development gives us that.
Eighteen of the 520 homes eventually planned for the site are currently being fitted out for this ongoing 120m project.
Two blocks of flats, 17 and 21 storeys high, comprising 463 apartments, will be built near Whitehall Road, around half a mile out of town. It will sit alongside the Grade II-listed viaduct, which had been disused since the 1960s.
The iconic former mill has had its problems over the past few years. But there could be light at the end of the tunnel, as weatherproofing works are taking place as long-term plans are drawn up for the buildings refurbishment.
