WCN Editorial Team 15 Feb 2016 EUROPE BUILDINGS

The proposals to redevelop the historic Tower Works site in Holbeck, UK have been approved by Leeds City Council.

The £80m project by developers Carillion will involve construction of ten new buildings that include 160 residential units as well as over 11,800 sq m of office space. It will also accommodate space for shops, restaurants and cafes.

In addition, the plan will cover preservation of various buildings on the site including the Engine House on Globe Road and three ornate Italian Towers.

City Plans Panel chair James McKenna said: “The redevelopment of the Tower Works site will create a dynamic new hub for businesses, residents, visitors and shoppers which will be a cornerstone in the regeneration of the whole area.

“Above all it is important to us to see this site protected and preserved as well as securing its future and maximising its enormous potential.”

Originally serving as a card clothing pin works site in the 1860s, Tower Works includes various listed buildings. The site was closed in 1978.

Work on the project is expected to commence in June 2016.
