Wates Construction regional director Paul Dodsworth added: “Our continued presence at Wellington Place, which also currently includes buildings 7 and 8, is in no small part due to our shared vision with MEPC to create exceptional developments that elevate the city’s commercial market. The start of construction at building 4 marks another fantastic milestone at Wellington Place and we very much look forward to delivering the latest phase of Leeds’ most ambitious commercial masterplan.”
