The Homes & Communities Agency has chosen Carillion as its preferred development partner for a mixed use development at Tower Works, a one-hectare development site within Holbeck Urban Village in Leeds.

Remnants of old mills on the site, including a trio of Grade II Italianate Towers, will be preserved as part of the scheme, which will include 92,000 sq ft of office space, 20,000sq ft of shops, bars and restaurants, and 147 residential units.

Gareth Jackson, development director for Carillion Developments, said: "This is an excellent development site in Leeds City Centre which forms a key part of the Leeds City skyline. Our masterplan proposals respectfully emulate the urban grain of Holbeck Urban Village whilst delivering a unique place making proposition of spacious canal side residential accommodation and commercial office spaces supported by complementary café bars and restaurants in an exciting part of Leeds City Centre."
