Developer X1 plans to deliver the new neighbourhood in the heart of the regeneration area over five phases.
X1 South Bank is located on the former Evans Halshaw car dealership site on Hunslet Road. In five buildings of 6-20 storeys it will provide over 900 flats, cafes and restaurants, in addition to office and retail space.
Phase 1 will boast 127 flats (pictured below) and townhouses in a 12 storey building with city views, a gym, rooftop garden and a café on the ground floor.
X1’s planning and design team includes DK Architects, Turley Associates, Planit-IE, Savills and Hydrock. While its favoured builders include Bardsley and Forrest.
Leeds City Council is transforming South Bank through a project that will double the size of Leeds city centre by delivering 8,000 homes and 35,000 new jobs, as well as world-class green space.
Melissa Green, operations director at X1, said: “Leeds is booming and we’re so proud to officially say we’re going to play a significant part in its growth with X1 South Bank.
“Our whole design team has made it their mission to create a development that not only offers first-rate accommodation, but that will genuinely enhance the area for the wider Leeds population by providing striking modern architecture, exciting commercial units and vibrant public space.”
