The site is steeped in industrial history and distinguished by three chimneys, built as Italianesque towers by ambitious nineteenth century industrialists. The towers are visible by train-passengers approaching Leeds from the south. The competition ran by the Regional Development Agency Yorkshire Forward, called for a commercially viable exemplar of sustainable mixed-use urban development that tackles the issues of Climate Change and provides a learning ‘log’ for others.
