Other Information

  • This development was proposed for the site of the old city centre swimming pool. The dated pool closed when a new modern facility was completed in South Leeds, and the current site owned by Leeds City Council is due to be sold to the developer once planning permission is secured.
  • The proposal was located in one of the key gateway sites into the north west of the city centre, requiring a design of the highest quality. The proposal consists of a 25 storey cylindrical residential tower designed by Make Architects (of Ken Shuttleworth fame), surrounded by low rise office units of around eight storeys high.
  • The tower element of the project was cancelled due to a combination of a slowdown in the residential market and the expensive design of the scheme, which the local planning body insisted on maintaining.
