Get Living scheme 2 compressed

The financial backers of build-to-rent operator Get Living have submitted plans to develop a five-acre neighbourhood in Leeds.

Delancey Oxford Residential and pension fund asset manager APG, together with Chelsea Barracks and Southbank Place developer Qatari Diar, are investing £180m in the project, which, subject to planning, will see more than 780 homes built in the South Bank area of the city.

The proposed scheme includes eight residential buildings designed by architect Sheppard Robson, with integrated public space.

The homes will comprise studios, one-, two- and three-bedroom flats and townhouses.

The project is Get Living’s first in Yorkshire and its third outside London, having established the East Village – the former 2012 Olympics athletes’ village – and a housing development at Elephant & Castle in the capital.

It also has a scheme at New Maker Yards within Middlewood Locks in Manchester and has further homes in development on High Street in Glasgow.
