Masterplan proposal in Leeds set on a busy route into the city on previously light industrial plot of approximately one hectare. The proposed mixed-use scheme involves a hotel and five new residential towers providing 800 units. Each tower is linked via a continuous three storey stepped podium incorporating gynasium, creche, swimming pool and external public realm space over a basement car park, with retail units at ground level.
Virtual wind analysis modelling on the proposed massing is being carried out to inform preliminary building stability loads and to mitigate comfort levels within the public realm and wider environment.
The structural scheme involves insitu concrete podium deck levels and a piled perimeter retaining wall within the basement. The towers are formed with concrete cores upto half a metre thick and using thin post-tensioned floor slabs to maximise headroom within
Phase 1 of the project, which consists of the refurbishment of a derelict 12-storey office with an extension, was approved in July 2016. Phase 2, developing the rest of the 2.45 acre site, is expected to be submitted for planning in October 2015.
