REAL ESTATE DEVELOPER COURT COLLABORATION SUBMITS RESIDENTIAL PLANNING APPLICATION FOR A NEW 349-BED ‘BUILD TO RENT’ SCHEME IN LEEDS

Court Collaboration in partnership with Torsion Developments has submitted a detailed planning application for a two-tower block development, housing 349 new ‘build to rent’ residential apartments in the heart of Leeds.

Leeds based contractor Torsion Group has worked closely with Court Collaboration and Torsion Developments as their construction partner for this scheme.

The development is estimated to be worth £65 million.

The 18 and 22 storey tower blocks will replace the former Alton Cars showroom site on Saxton Lane, Leeds.
The piazza-style development will be situated adjacent to all major transport routes and will accommodate one, two and three-bed apartments. It will be located within walking distance of the high street and will create a connectivity route to the city.

A below ground level car park, community hub, refuse, cycle storage with a ‘specialist’ cycle facility, and amenity spaces will be provided for the residents.

The development has been designed to be sympathetic to the local environment and landscape in its appearance.
Planning consent is due at the end of May 2019 with a start on-site programmed for late summer 2019.

Local Leeds based Architects Den Architecture and Structural Engineer CWA form part of Torsion’s design team on the project which is due for completion in late summer of 2021.

Torsion Group Managing Director Gary Walton said “Torsion is delighted to have been selected as the main contractor for the delivery of these two residential tower blocks in the heart of Leeds. Working In partnership with Court Collaboration we are currently delivering 225 luxury residential apartments in the heart of Birmingham city centre and are delighted to continue our collaborative working partnership. With our Head Office in Leeds, we are excited at the prospect of delivering this build to rent scheme and hope to commence work later this year.”

Court Collaboration Managing Director Alex Neale said “Urban growth in Leeds is amongst the strongest in the UK, and it’s an area currently enjoying substantial investment and economic growth. That stimulus is creating significant demand for high-quality city centre living that this development aims to meet.”
