The scheme forms part of a major regeneration programme of the South Bank area of the city, which will provide over 8,000 new homes – 928 of them at Points Cross.
United Living New Homes is also working in close partnership with The Leeds College of Building, University Technical College Leeds and The Ruth Gorse Academy, to support a cohort of apprentices and work placements during the construction phase, which is scheduled to be completed by early Spring 2023.
Neil Armstrong, chief executive at United Living Group, said: “This contract award is an exciting addition to United Living Group’s growing portfolio of development projects.
“Leeds is a thriving city that is growing and needs new, good quality housing to meet demand. We look forward to playing a central role in the regeneration of this area of the city and creating much-needed new homes for residents”.
Catriona Simons, Chief Executive of The Guinness Partnership, said: “This site, within the Leeds South Bank Regeneration and Innovation District, is a fantastic opportunity for us to provide more new affordable homes in Leeds.
