The fully-glazed 10-storey building fronting Wellington Road will offer 157,000 sq ft of Grade A office space with floor plates of 16,759 sq ft while the basement will provide parking for 69 cars plus 92 bike spaces.
BAM also has planning permission on its 5-acre Wellington Road site for Latitude Blue, a 119,000 sq ft seven-storey office building.
The projects will be built by the North East division of BAM Construction.
BAM Properties northern development manager Paul Smith said: “The recent upturn in take-up in the Leeds office market was behind our decision to take Latitude Yellow to the next stage.
“There is currently a high level of demand for quality office space in the market and we believe these two buildings will provide everything cutting-edge companies are looking for in Grade A office space in the heart of a thriving international city.
“These high-spec office schemes are designed to achieve a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating, with a raft of energy efficient features that will deliver outstanding buildings for occupiers and contribute to lower running costs”.
