A 300 unit private rental sector development in central Leeds adjacent to listed structures and within a conservation area.
Ryder was commissioned to undertake a full review of the current RIBA 3 planning approved scheme with affordability and buildability key.
Our initial focus on apartment types and layouts reduced the original 54 unit types to six. In tandem, this approach rationalised both kitchen and bathroom types across the complete development.
Simplifying the disposition and number of apartments, twinned with increasing height to strategic locations whilst respecting key views, has increased capacity from 214 planning approved to 300 units ensuring the overall development has become financially viable and will finally transform this neglected site in the heart of the city.
