An 18-acre brownfield site in Leicester’s Waterside area will be developed into a new neighbourhood of homes, shops and workplaces.
Alongside 302 new city centre homes, Keepmoat will deliver 67,500 square feet of office space, a 5,000 square foot retail unit and a park area. Leicester City Council has already allocated £15m worth of capital funding to the scheme, with another £45m expected to be invested.
Keepmoat Homes regional director Andrew Mason said: “We are delighted to be selected as preferred developer to deliver Phase One of the Waterside development. Keepmoat has an exemplary track record in working with public sector organisations to deliver their regeneration aspirations and we look forward to working in partnership with Leicester City Council to deliver our joint vision for Waterside.
"We believe this scheme offers a unique opportunity to maximise the full potential of the waterside setting and transform the area, creating an exciting housing offer and providing a new high-quality office location in the city centre."
