The development forms part of the TCS Whitehall Riverside scheme which includes 300,000 square foot of premium office space, a 500 space multi-storey car park and significant public realm and is linked to the already established walkway and pedestrian bridge.

It is expected that work on the scheme will begin later this year, subject to part pre-let, for which negations are in hand.

Edward Ziff, Chairman and Chief Executive, commented:

�We are delighted to have secured planning permission for the next phase of development in our Whitehall Riverside Scheme in Leeds and to have done so before the new community infrastructure levy was put in place. The site is in a strategic position, with excellent access and we look forward to significant progress being made over the next year.""
