A project to transform a derelict industrial site in Leeds will begin in June.
Construction firm Carillion will transform the former Tower Works side in Holbeck with a mixed-use development that will include 90,000 sq ft of commercial space, 24,000 sq ft of retail and restaurant space, plus 160 homes including apartments and townhouses.
The works, originally a clothing card pin factory, had been operating from Victorian times until 1978, with many of the buildings being listed structures.
Chair of the city plans panel Councillor James McKenna said: “The redevelopment of the Tower Works site will create a dynamic new hub for businesses, residents, visitors and shoppers which will be a cornerstone in the regeneration of the whole area.”
A city council report revealed to the Yorkshire Evening Post last month noted that Temple Works was one of two prospective major housebuilding sites in Leeds at present, but called for this to be supplemented with up to 6,000 new homes in the city centre.
Leeds is aiming to add 70,000 new homes by 2028.
