Wellington Place, Leeds

Wellington Place marks an important part of Leeds’ industrial history. The site was once home to Wellington Station and a confluence of goods rail-yards, the remaining wagon hoist tower of which stands in Tower Square to this day. The rail connections allowed for industrial innovation and trades to boom, such as the textile industry, which is woven in to Leeds’ cultural and built history.
The outline Masterplan for the site, developed over ten years ago, established a key framework for the future delivery of the site, including the development phasing and urban grain. Over the following ten years the masterplan has been refined and key plots have already been delivered. Block 12 forms part of the next phase of development.
