Regent Street is a 185 unit, build to rent residential development in the Mabgate area of Leeds city centre. Mabgate is synonymous with the woollen industry and is seeing considerable change as the area is undergoing regeneration with several residential building coming forward.

Initially appointed in December 2020, 5plus led the design development of the scheme which was submitted for planning in August 2021.

The scheme delivers a mix of one, two and three bedroom apartments through a selection of apartment sizes and layouts to meet various housing needs. The dwellings are spread across 10 storeys.

Generous Ground floor amenity is provided, with workspace, a gym and recreational facilities. External space is well catered for with a landscaped communal courtyard and 10th floor roof terrace. Private balconies overlooking the courtyard benefit from the southern outlook while private terraces across the 9th floor are granted views across the city.

Efforts to maximise the principles of suitable design are fundamental to the client brief, with minimising operational carbon a key driver. The building is designed to work with the Leeds’ district heating system. One of the largest in the UK, the system enables huge uplifts beyond Part L targets.

The appearance of the building references the industrial architecture of Mabgate. The base of the building is formed from brick with stepped metal accents grouping simple window apertures. The top two floors break from this to create a dynamic concertina roofscape echoing the area’s vernacular.
