The property developer behind the Victoria Gate (formally known as Eastgate Quarters) development in Leeds, has released information and images on the detailed designs of the scheme ahead of its public consultation this week.
The public consultation will be held within the centre of the Victoria Quarter adjacent to the fountain on the 18th (10am – 8pm), 19th (10am – 6pm) and 20th (10am – 4pm) April 2013.
The detailed designs for phase one includes three main buildings:
- A flagship John Lewis store, with a striking facade drawing on Leeds’ textile heritage
- Victoria Gate arcade, with stores, restaurants, cafes and leisure space in an elegantly designed two-street arcade linking Victoria Quarter to the John Lewis store
- A multi-storey car park for up to 800 cars
Alongside regenerating the physical space, the first phase will also deliver up to 1,500 retail and hospitality jobs and 6,000 employment opportunities.
