Plans for previous Yorkshire Post site

Plans have been submitted for the well-known Leeds City Centre site previously occupied by the Yorkshire Post newspaper offices, by student accommodation developer Urbanite.

A new design has been drawn up by DLA Architecture and planning consultant Quod for three residential tower-blocks up to 42 storey’s high.

The new proposals are believed to have been positively received by Leeds City Council’s plans panel at a pre-app presentation earlier in the year.

The previous building of the Yorkshire Post on Wellington Street was demolished in 2014 and has consequently been cleared for re-development.

The new project is for a 42 storey purpose-built student accommodation tower to include 1,125 student beds together with 18,500 sq ft of ancillary facilities. The second building would be 32 storey’s and have 638 student beds and ancillary space of 21,500 sq ft, both to consist of a mix of cluster apartments and studios. The final building of 25 storey’s is to consist of 348 one, two and three bedroom apartments.
