Planning application has been lodged to create a major residential-led development on Leeds’ east side complementing other large-scale schemes earmarked for the area.

The proposals, from development company Gold & Amber, will see two sites on Shannon Street that cover approximately 0.46 hectares, transformed into 350 apartments.

The two, 10 and 20 storey buildings, which have been designed by Leeds-based Brewster Bye Architects, will have commercial space on the ground floor, and the development will also include a resident’s gym, common areas, entrance plaza and greenspace.

The land is currently used as a car park, with several low-level commercial buildings, which will be demolished.

“This latest planning application complements everything else happening in Quarry Hill and would be an integral piece of the overall jigsaw for the area,” said Sophie Brown from Gold & Amber.

Chris Austin, MD of Brewster Bye Architects, added: “We’ve designed this latest development to gradually step from East to West towards the city centre, starting with a 20 storey ‘tower’ element which will be the pinnacle of the scheme and a prominent landmark for anyone travelling into Leeds on York Road.”
