Plans for phase two of the Aire Park masterplan revealed

We are pleased to reveal the first look at plans for the second and final phase of the Aire Park masterplan.

The next step in transforming the former brownfield site into a vibrant new destination, the plans feature 502 high-quality 1,2,3 and 4 bedroom homes, including affordable housing, 20,000 sq ft of leisure space, earmarked for cafes, restaurants and cultural activities, and a new 500-space multi storey car park.

In addition to the new elements of the built environment, the plans also reveal the final hectare of the park and extended public realm. This extension will make the park the largest new city centre green park in the country, providing a wide range of benefits to visitors and future residents including additional outdoor event space for cultural activities.

Situated south of Crown Point Road with Black Bull Street running from the north-east to the south west, and the A61 along the south-west boundary, phase two of the masterplan strategically connects the South Bank to the city centre and Leeds Dock, creating an accessible and safe route for pedestrians and cyclists to use.

Simon Schofield, Head of Development at Vastint UK, said, “Moving into the second phase of the Aire Park masterplan is a really exciting time. We are already underway with 270,000 sq ft of commercial space and have seen strong demand from the market already. Along with our recently revealed ambitions for The Tetley building and the ongoing plans for the first residential homes within Aire Park, phase two of our masterplan expands the site to the other side of Crown Point Road.

“As long-term investors in Leeds, we’re excited to be bringing new spaces forward for residents and visitors to enjoy. Revealing these plans shows our ambition to not just regenerate part of the city’s South Bank but to create a vibrant neighbourhood that is socially, economically and environmentally sustainable, breathing new life into this area of Leeds.”

Once completed Aire Park will include 1,400 modern homes, and over 1 million sq ft of mixed-use office, retail, leisure and commercial space. Anchored around an 8-acre public park with the refurbished Tetley at its heart, the development will be an ideal location for setting city centre living, with proximity to retail and financial quarters, The Calls, and Leeds railway station.
