Plan for trio of towers at old Yorkshire Post site

Student accommodation developer Urbanite Living has submitted plans to build three residential towers at the former site of the Yorkshire Post in Leeds.

 

Designed by DLA Architecture, the proposal includes a 42-storey tower, standing at 154m tall, comprising 1,125 student beds as well as 18,500 sq ft of ancillary facilities.

 

This will be accompanied by a second purpose-built student block of 32 storeys for 638 student beds.

 

The third building, standing at 25 storeys, will accommodate 348 build to rent flats.

 

Galliford Try has set out the construction management plan as part of the planning submission. It plans to use ‘off-site manufactured’ bathroom pods and pre-cast concrete façades.

 

It is the second development proposal for the Wellington Street and Wellington Bridge Street site, which was cleared back in 2014.

 

Previous plans for two build to rent buildings and a hotel were previously proposed three years ago but were not brought forward.
