The city centre has shifted drastically with the now sprawling Trinity Leeds shopping centre being dominant, alongside the new ultra-modern Victoria Gate complex, while the redevelopment of the Majestic by Channel 4 has transformed the City Square area.
New additions to the skyline have also shot up, with 2005's sprawling skyscraper Bridgewater Place being toppled from the top spot by 2020's Atlus House, a 37-storey building that is now the tallest building in Yorkshire.
And plans haven't stopped there. A major project from Leeds City Council and the West Yorkshire Combined Authority plans to completely alter the area around Leeds Station, while work has begun on an ambitious project to build two new hospitals in a £650m scheme at Leeds General Infirmary and to build a £80m School of Arts building for Leeds Beckett University.
However, it is just not commercial buildings that are springing up on the skyline, there are also plans to redevelop and regenerate disused sites and older, historic buildings to create entirely new neighbourhoods and homes for people to live.
We have already seen new developments across the city, but here are 11 new ones set to change Leeds as we know it.
1. Former Yorkshire Post site
Once home to this very newspaper, the former Yorkshire Post and Yorkshire Evening Post site has redeveloped. The headquarters, in Wellington Street, was known for its brutalist architecture - which often divided opinion. Newspaper staff moved to a leased office building in Whitehall Road and the printing presses to an industrial estate. The building was demolished in 2014. However, the old YP tower remains at the site.
2. Former Yorkshire Post site
Now, the huge corner plot has a new life as a built-to-rent apartment block, signalling another chapter in its history and another change in how we live and work. Owner Grainger plc reflected the sites heritage by naming the new building 'The Headline' and there are other nods such as the walls on the ground floor being decorated with bespoke prints featuring typewriters and cameras. The building has 242 apartments as well as ground floor work spaces, a gym, wellness studio and meeting/office room. At the top of the building is the Sky Lounge, which is a wraparound outdoor terraces for occupants.
3. Stonebridge Mills
The 'Stonebridge Beck' scheme is located on the site of Stonebridge Mills, a grade II listed old mill in Farnley. Caddick Construction began work on the scheme back in May of this year, on behalf of developers Rushbond Plc and Advent Developments. Plans are to deliver 112 homes on the brownfield site. The £25m project includes 82 new homes as well as the regeneration of the grade II listed and derelict former mill buildings and cottages, which is creating a further 30 homes
4. Stonebridge Mills
The site's historic chimney and water tower will be retained as part of the redevelopment. The 10-acre site includes the former mill pond as well as a new piece of public art at the entrance to the development.
The scheme is due to be completed in the summer of 2023.
