Torus will now choose a builder from its contractor framework for the £30m Lightbody Street redevelopment where construction is due to start next Spring.
The contractors in the running for the scheme are Seddon, Anwyl Construction, Lovell Partnerships, Caddick Construction, Eric Wright and Vistry Partnerships North West.
Work will completely transform the vacant former industrial site on Lightbody Street and bring a mix of 1, 2 and 3-bedroom apartments, townhouses and commercial space to the iconic location, at the start of the Leeds to Liverpool canal.
Managing Director of Torus Developments, Chris Bowen said: “We’re incredibly excited to receive planning for the Lightbody Street scheme and create homes that will further add to the unique history and landscape of the city.
“This development will completely transform the area and help create a thriving community everyone can enjoy – from residents to local businesses and even tourists – Lightbody will have an incredibly positive impact on the city at large.”
