Set to transform the George Street area, between Kirkgate Market and the Victoria Gate development.
In December 2017, Town Centre Securities were chosen as Leeds City Council’s partner to carry out a major scheme to revitalise this historic street in Leeds city centre.
Leeds City Council and Town Centre Securities will form a partnership, with the Council acquiring a 50% ownership of the completed development.
The proposals include replacing the current outdated 1930s and 1980s buildings with a new apart-hotel and nine commercial units which will bring more visitors into the area and improve the flow of customers between the market and Victoria Gate. The high standard of the proposed development will attract high quality retailers which will not only add value to but also complement the existing offer in the market.
The ground floor commercial units will have entrances on George Street and form connections through to the former Butchers Row, which offers the opportunity to access the market from several points along George Street. The apart-hotel will also link directly into the market as well as from George Street to encourage guests to visit Kirkgate during their stay in Leeds.
