TCS bags further Whitehall Riverside consent
Developer Town Centre Securities has secured the go-ahead for the mixed-use Leeds site, covering offices, a car park and a hotel/aparthotel scheme.
The consent allows for a 478-space CitiPark, hotel accommodation and up to 235,000 sq ft of office space. CitiPark is TCS’s car parks division.
The architect for the scheme is Enjoy Design, working with landscape architect re-form.
Earlier this year, permission was granted for the 600-home residential component of the wider scheme, which is being delivered by Glenbrook and Legal & General.
Craig Burrow, group property director at TCS, said: “After a lengthy process we are pleased to reach this milestone in the project and secure detailed and outline planning consent for the remaining plots.
“Our masterplan has been designed for modern needs, but with flexibility front of mind to adapt to the changing requirements of workspace, residential, electric vehicles, and the visitor economy.
“It will deliver a truly mixed-use scheme and a unique neighbourhood in the West End of the city which is now enjoying increased activity and development.”
Work on the parking facility should start early in 2024, said Ben Ziff, managing director of CitiPark and TCS board director.
Ziff said: “As one of the UK’s leading providers of EV charging technology, we are excited to be bringing forward this pioneering, cutting-edge CitiPark multi-storey car park, travel hub and a renewable power facility, and are aiming to progress this early next year.
“This newest and most innovative branch will have the capacity to be the largest EV charging hub in the North of England, and we are confident that this will not only enhance visual impact to this key route into the city, but provide a future proof, sustainable building with value in mind for residents, commuters and visitors to the great city of Leeds.”
