This area of Leeds has seen significant regeneration in recent years and is now known as the Northern Quarter in recognition of its increased popularity and vibrancy. The wider area has also seen a number of new shops, bars and restaurants. Addington had originally secured planning permission to build a scheme for one hundred apartments, but following market research, decided to build freehold housing for sale instead. The company has other residential developments in the city, including at Headingley Park, where it has a 152-unit PRS scheme.
Roshan Ramlugun, Partner at Addington Capital said: "We are delighted to have gained planning permission for this scheme which we believe will help meet an ever-increasing demand in Leeds city centre, for both occupational and investment properties. Leeds has a vibrant young professional market looking for quality space as they move up the ladder. We believe they will find our scheme attractive.”
