Finalised application submitted 

The Leeds Partnership has recently submitted a finalised planning application for the Eastgate and Harewood Quarter of Leeds’ city centre. The master plan design, led by Farrells architects, illustrates aims to create a £700 million, 1.2 million ft² (100,000m²) retail-led city centre regeneration. The key aim of the design is to incorporate Leeds’ historic legacy with a contemporary European ambience. The largely derelict site will be transformed into a number of different buildings with many diverse uses, including: new department stores (notably a flagship John Lewis store), over 100 new shops, bars and restaurants, cinemas, a gym, offices, flats, a crèche and other community facilities. The development will provide 600 new homes and as many as 5000 new jobs.
