A planning application has been submitted by DPP for a Build to Rent scheme at Flax Place in Leeds, on behalf of Galliford Try Investments.
The application, which relates to land off Flax Place to the east of Leeds city centre, will see the creation of two tower buildings of 15 and 11 storeys respectively, which together will feature 350 new flats, each with home-working facilities.
Michelle Davies, director of DPP, said: “The addition of dedicated home working facilities in the apartments is becoming an established part of city centre developments of this nature, reflecting the changing trends towards flexible working, particularly in light of the pandemic situation.”
With the towers connected at lower ground floor level by a reception, the scheme will also feature shared amenity space facing on to an external courtyard for residents’ use.
Davies commented: “We are delighted to work with Galliford Try Investments on this key regeneration site within Leeds.
“Our historical involvement in the site and local knowledge of Leeds meant that we were able to fully understand the constraints and opportunities and provided advice throughout the pre-application process to result in an attractive and sustainable proposal.”
