Maslow Capital was delighted to support this 367 apartment residential scheme in Leeds.
The proposed city centre ‘Phoenix’ scheme, off Saxton Lane involves the demolition of two existing redundant industrial buildings and the construction of two high quality residential blocks, rising to 18 and 22 stories respectively to create an iconic ‘gateway’ development in a regeneration area of Leeds.
The £82m GDV scheme will provide 367 apartments across the two blocks, together with high quality communal facilities, basement car parking, landscaping, public open space and highway works. Residential accommodation will also include a number of specially designed disabled accessible compliant apartments.
The development is being constructed with state-of-the-art methods which include offsite manufacturing for the Frame and Facades. Using the pre-cast concrete ‘Crosswall’ system, ensures factory-controlled levels of production of both internal and external panels, delivered to site pre-glazed, and complete with integrated service ducts.
The basement carpark, ground floor and first floor comprise of an in-situ concrete frame. The load from the precast units is transferred via a 1200mm thick first floor slab via the concrete columns down to a 1400mm thick concrete raft foundation.
The blocks, consisting of a combination of elements of red and grey brickwork clad concrete panels together with both smooth and figured white concrete panels, are arranged around a central public open space. This north south pedestrian flow through the site, will connect residents and members of the public with other new developments and local amenities creating a new residential neighbourhood. Directly to the north of the site is the developing cycle super-highway, reinforcing links to the city-centre and surrounding areas.
