Manchester-based Glenbrook Property has secured approval from Leeds City Council in the UK for its plans for two blocks of build-to-rent flats in the city centre.

Glenbrook Property has received approval to build 500 flats in Leeds across two blocks of 16 and 19 storeys.

Construction of £135m project at Whitehall Riverside is expected to commence in 2023.

This project, designed by Sheppard Robson, is part of a wider £280m masterplan brought forward by Town Centre Securities (TCS), a property investor and car parking operator.

It will feature 4,500ft2 of commercial space at ground floor level.

Glenbrook senior development manager Danny Roberts said: “This decision to grant planning consent for the residential element of Whitehall Riverside will unlock the delivery of the wider masterplan.

“Whitehall Riverside will be a premier, highly sustainable development where people will want to come and spend time both now and in decades to come.

“The design has been carefully considered to create a resilient scheme which is embedded in its surroundings and will encourage an active community. We look forward to starting construction in the new year with completion expected in late 2025.”
