To mark the UK Construction Week Exhibition in Birmingham (9th-11th October), we’ve rounded up construction redevelopments in Leeds and Yorkshire.
South Bank Leeds
The South Bank redevelopment will bring economic growth to the city of Leeds. The plans will double the size of the city centre and remodel the railway station.
This remodel will prepare Leeds for HS2. The redevelopment brings 8,000 new homes to the city centre and 35,000 local jobs.
Leeds Bradford Airport
The three-storey terminal building extension to the Leeds Bradford airport will create larger departure gates, more seating areas and more restaurants.
The terminal extension will be completed in 2020. The project also includes a two-storey pier to replace the existing passenger walkway.
White Rose Expansion
A £1 billion mixed-use scheme to expand the White Rose Office Park will include more retail and office spaces, a community hub, several schools and health facilities.
The scheme is a new way of living, working, learning and relaxing due to the mix of planned facilities and green spaces.
York Clifford’s Tower and surrounding area
The £30m Clifford’s Tower redevelopment includes a new multi-storey car park at St. George’s Field and new residential space in the Foss Basin.
The Foss area and Piccadilly will be transformed through more walkways and footbridges.
Piccadilly’s redevelopment includes a new pedestrian-friendly street.
All these improvements are set to open up the area making it more accessible for residents and tourists, while creating more retail space for businesses.
Sheffield Midcity House and student housing
The Midcity House redevelopment will include three buildings of residential properties and retail units.
The 32-storey tower on the corner of Pinstone Street and Furnival Gate will be Sheffield’s tallest building once complete. The Midcity House project is a regeneration project for the city centre to bring more housing to the area.
Additionally, a new proposal on Allen Street for an 8-storey building to house 300 student flats is being discussed with Sheffield City Council.
Huddersfield Mixed-Use Gateway Plans
Trinity One will create 229 units in Huddersfield’s former Kirklees College.
These units are residential properties, offices, retail units and a supermarket.
The mixed-use redevelopment will serve as a gateway site into Huddersfield and bring hundreds of jobs to the area.
Hull Albion Square Development
Hull’s 2.2 hectare Albion Square redevelopment at £130 million will include 10 retail units, 832 m² worth of office space, 278 residential properties and an ice arena.
Moving the famous glass mosaic by Alan Boyson will be part of the bid requirement.
Hull city council are asking for contract bidders by early 2019.
