Build To Rent provider Get Living has revealed plans to invest up to £180m in 756 units in Leeds.
Acquired by Get Living in June 2017, the plan for the development is to create a ‘rental neighbourhood’ within a five-acre site on the South Bank of Leeds. The site currently has lapsed planning consent and Get Living intends to submit a detailed planning application for the site in July, with a view to work starting in 2019.
This is the first investment in Yorkshire for Get Living, which already manages 2,000 homes in two London neighbourhoods, including at the former London 2012 Athletes’ Village now known as East Village.
Get Living has also submitted plans for a £200m, 727-home development in Glasgow city centre.
The South Bank development would feature a co-working hub for tech businesses and start-ups, as well as landscaped green spaces.
Get Living is also working with Canal and River Trust, to discuss how the scheme could open up access to the canal.
