Plans for Yorkshire’s tallest building submitted

A giant 46 storey skyscraper has had plans submitted to be built in Leeds, West Yorkshire that will have with it its own ‘Sky Gardens’.

Proposals have been submitted that will make the huge skyscraper the tallest building located Yorkshire if approval is granted.

The plans themselves have been submitted by development company CityLife and are supported by ID Planning and Nick Brown Architects, and are now with Leeds City Council.

Springwell Gardens is to be built if given the green light on the location of Whitehall road and Springwell Road as you enter the south of the city centre. The 46 storey building would tower over the city at 142 meters tall and will home 604 apartments of various sizes.

Sheffield currently has planning permission granted for a £100 million pound development of apartments and will be when completed will be Yorkshire’s tallest building, but this Leeds development would be much taller than that.

Hopefully when completed the new Leeds skyscraper will host two indoor sky gardens, which will host incredible vantage points of the city. We don’t think they will need a driveway here, but it would be a great thing to boast about ‘installing Yorkshire’s highest driveway’.

The gardens themselves would be sheltered and located on levels 21 and 33, with the very top apartments hosting their very own private landscaped roof terraces.

This would be the 2nd stage for the developers who already have planning permission for a smaller building located at the same location with work due to be completed within the next two years.

The land is currently Cartwight House and the development would play a major part in the regeneration scheme of Leeds South Bank area. The project is designed to double the size of Leeds city centre when completed.

To include a new city-centre park, the HS2 train station and a lot more housing set to be built in the upcoming years.
