Tower Works Masterplan Holbeck, Leeds

The New Edges

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.
