A short video of our time at Leeds Waterfront Festival

The Leeds Waterfront Festival was perhaps the best demonstration of what makes the South Bank of Leeds so vibrant. 

We were also there talking about the Climate Innovation District, which will be one of the biggest new additions to a part of Leeds which is being rejuvenated in a fascinating way.

Our £125m project, which began in 2016, will see brownfield sites either side of the River Aire transformed into low-carbon housing, leisure and office space and public realm. 

The feedback we got from the public over the weekend was amazing, but it was also good for Citu team members to meet people living and working in the area as well as visitors and those interested in relocating to this rapidly changing area.

The biggest aspect of the Waterfront Festival is the use of the river itself, and it’s this very river that will be running through the heart of the Climate Innovation District.

When you think of traditional city centre developments, you don’t picture an idyllic setting of river banks with people fishing while otters swim on by.  But that’s exactly what the Climate Innovation District will be when complete, an oasis in the heart of a vibrant city.
