Artisan Real Estate reveals plans for £65m Kirkstall Place in UK
June 11, 2021 – Real estate developer Artisan Real Estate has revealed details of its new £65m residential development in Leeds, the UK.
The new development, named Kirkstall Place, is said to be the company’s first project in the city. It will be constructed on a seven-acre site on the corner of Kirkstall Hill and Kirkstall Lane.
To be built on the former Kirkstall District Centre site, Kirkstall Place will deliver 263 homes comprising 80 townhouses and 183 apartments.
It will include a mix of three- and four-bedroom townhouses and one- and two-bedroom apartments with public open space and private gardens.
The project will be powered completely using electricity and air source heat pumps, and the car parking spaces will also have electric vehicle charging points.
The Leeds City Council has granted planning permission for the residential development in April and currently the demolition and enabling works are underway at the project site.
Construction work on the project is scheduled to commence in September this year, with completion planned in 2024. The first occupiers are expected to move in next summer.
Artisan North regional manager James Bulmer said: “Sustainability is a principal philosophy here at Artisan, that is why we have designed Kirkstall Place with environmental, economic and social awareness at its core to ensure we not only deliver excellent, energy efficient homes, but also create a place with a strong sense of community.
“We intend for Kirkstall Place to be the first of many developments that we undertake in the Leeds and wider Yorkshire region.
“We are currently recruiting across our commercial, technical, and sales departments as we look to scale our regional office and acquire more brownfield sites for residential development.”
