Leeds Gateway mixed-use site hits market

CBRE’s Leeds team has been appointed to market Sweet Street West, a 7.5 acre strategic gateway site in Leeds, on behalf of St James Securities.

Sweet Street West lies adjacent to the northern site boundary of Holbeck Urban Village and is poised to become one of the most dynamic business and residential developments in the UK.

Holbeck Urban Village covers an area of 37.5 acres and will create over 5,000 new jobs and attract around £800m in investment. Over the next 10 years 800,000 sq ft of office space and 2,500 residential apartments will be developed.

The extensive site has live planning consent for 830 apartments and 250,000 sq.ft of office space in a mixed-use scheme which has strong transport links into the city and further afield.

Mike Gorman, Director at CBRE said; “We are launching this site into the market at an exciting time as this is one of the remaining pieces of land suitable for large scale redevelopment in this area of Leeds. In the last 6 months, almost 20 acres of land has been sold around this site which has created a real buzz to this opportunity.”
