SRA have been appointed by Town Centre Securities PLC to provide Project Management and Employers Agent support services on a brand new 126 room aparthotel and nine new retail units in Leeds City Centre, providing direct access from George Street into the market. The project is designed to complement the successful refurbishment of the grade I-listed Kirkgate Market and improve connectivity between the market and Victoria Gate.
The full and listed building applications have been approved for the construction of 96 studios, 26 one-bedroom and 4 two-bedroom units. In addition, 9 ground floor commercial units comprising 876 sq metres will be added to provide a range of commercial uses to include retail and leisure facilities, with further access points to Leeds Kirkgate Market.
The new development is part of an ongoing scheme to further develop the southern side of George Street which will not only complement the original Victorian Kirkgate Market, but also ensure synergy with the adjacent Victoria Gate development.
