McLaren gets green light for £85m build-to-rent scheme

Beck Yard, designed by Carey Jones Chapman Tolcher (CJCT), will transform a vacant former car park site into a residential led neighbourhood delivering 375 build-to-rent homes, comprising a mix of apartments.

The development includes 30,000 sq ft of external amenity space and 7,000 sq ft of internal amenity, featuring residents’ lounges, shared workspaces, gym, and events areas, with roof gardens on the 1st, 9th, and 14th floors.

Matthew Biddle, Managing Director, McLaren Living, said: “We’re extremely excited to move forward with our plans for Beck Yard and to work with Leeds City Council to deliver this landmark development, providing high quality yet attainable new homes to the city of Leeds.

“It’s an excellent time to be working in the city. Leeds is one of the UK’s fastest growing cities, forecast to grow by 21% over the next ten years. It is rapidly becoming a headquarters location and the arrival of Channel 4, the planned move to the city by the BBC, along with major corporates, demonstrate a bright future.

“Beck Yard is one of two schemes we’re committed to delivering in Leeds and we anticipate receiving strong rental demand for our high-quality experience-led living.”

McLaren Living is under offer with a funding partner with development anticipated to commence this autumn.
