40 storey skyscraper planned for Leeds

Emerging plans have been unveiled for a new skyscraper close to the first direct arena in Leeds which would become the tallest building in the city and wider Yorkshire region if developed.

Knightsbridge Capital (Leeds) is behind proposals for a 40-storey tower on the site of Hume House on Wade Lane, along the road from Merrion Centre and in the heart of the city's Arena Quarter.

The building, designed by Nick Brown Architects, would be clad in Yorkshire Gritstone, subject to costing, and is likely to comprise primarily student accommodation with commercial space at ground-floor level.

It is proposed to demolish the existing property at the location, which was acquired from Ace Liberty & Stone earlier this year for £3.55m, and to construct a 126 metre tower in a similar position to Hume House.
