We've seen many whacky proposals in Leeds, some good lookers, some not so good. I'm sure architects use Leeds as a test bed for their moch renders. Kissing towers to the Spiricle, they never get built.
Well this one is being unveiled at MIPIM (Even though ive just unveiled it for them, LOL) and they hope to have it built by 2021 :unsure:

I've only just found out. Finally something for Leeds. I've said all along it needed to go Leeds or Birmingham. No disrespect to Manchester but it's Leeds' or Birmingham's turn for piece of the pudding.

Thanks for the Leeds update @Brum X It's much appreciated. I need to get my lazy bum down there for a change and do a full photo update to this thread. There's a fair bit happening right now. We are in need of a few more quality builds to drowned out some of naughty norties.

I'm a little rusty on the detail but I think that will become Leeds' highest building. (Highest, not tallest) ...but I'd need to check.

I'm here to help Aviador :smug:

3rd Tallest = Sky Plaza - 348ft (106 metres)

2nd Tallest = Bridgewater Place - 367ft (112 metres)

New Tallest (JUST) = Hulme House - (114.3 metres)

Hope this helps

And on Leeds City Centre ridge will look very tall from a distance.

Thanks you know your stuff! In that case it will be significantly higher on the Leeds skyline as Bridgewater Place sits low near the river Aire. I'm hoping it will blot out the view of Opal Tower nearby. I hate that building.

I really like it Aviador, I wonder if it will have aircraft warning lights on the top given Leeds high platform ?
Sorry I mist the question, yes it will for sure. The centre of Leeds is approximately 8 miles as the crow flies from runway 32 at LBA. Just about everything over 20 or so storeys has red warning lights. I think Sky Plaza has a flashing red light just to be different.
