Wellington Place unveils Tower Square

The site which will be one of the largest public spaces in Leeds, will be landscaped with trees and planting to create a natural setting for people to enjoy the ground floor shops, flexible seating and free WiFi.

Tower Square will open during the first quarter of 2016 and will host an array of exciting new community and charity events and activities as well as public art displays and installations which will reflect the rich history of the site and link back to the 1850 Old Wagon Hoist which is at the centre of the space.

Tower Square, is part of the new business quarter - Wellington Place - which isfunded by CPPIB and Hermes Investment Management and developed and managed by MEPC.

James Dipple, chief executive of MEPC, said: ""We see Leeds' newest public square as being a truly unique urban space for everyone to enjoy.

""Our aim is to create a natural setting which not only connects Wellington Place, its history, buildings and all those who work in them, but is also a place for the people of Leeds to meet, eat, shop, relax and enjoy. We are excited to be creating what will be a superb and welcoming addition to our thriving city.""
