Keepmoat, Strata to build £142m housing project in Leeds

WCN Editorial Team 12 Apr 2016 EUROPE BUILDINGS

Keepmoat and Strata have obtained a contract from Leeds City Council to build 1,000 new homes in Leeds, UK, which will involve an investment of £142m.

The homes will be built across 13 sites in the Seacroft, Halton Moor and Osmandthorpe areas of Leeds.

The council has committed to ensure that development takes place on brownfield land first, and hence all the construction will take place on land previously used for industrial or commercial purposes. Construction is slated to begin in early 2017.

Keepmoat operations director in Yorkshire Ian Hoad said: “We are actively expanding our presence in West Yorkshire, where we see a real appetite for new homes. With 95% of our developments built on brownfield land we are perfectly placed to deliver this scheme and we’re thrilled to have been selected as chosen developer alongside Strata.

“Working in partnership with Strata will allow us to accelerate the delivery of these new homes, with the target of achieving 150 properties per annum.

“We aren’t just taking one development in one part of the region. We are completely overhauling three neighbourhoods and potentially putting nearly 1,000 people in the region on the property ladder.”
