Mabgate Yard is a development of approximately 310 high-quality studio, 1,2 and 3 bed apartments as well as communal, co-working and creative space which will regenerate a redundant site in one of Leeds’ most exciting neighbourhoods.

The development will centre around a communal heart, as a focal point for residents to meet, relax and collaborate. The proposals will further the regeneration that is taking place in this area of Leeds and offer a choice of high-quality accommodation on a key gateway site between St James’s University Hospital and the city centre. Regeneration of this brownfield site will help to address Leeds’ housing needs and the design of the development will complement the existing established creative community.
