What do you see when you think of City Centre living, for us, we see block after block of uninspiring apartments that seem to have been dropped in with no consideration of it's surroundings.
It's time for change, City Centre living doesn't need to be that way. It can be so much better, and it should be so much better.
The Climate Innovation District is the largest sustainable development in the UK, and it's happening in Leeds.
We're building houses, the first time they've been built in Leeds City Centre in over 90 years. We're building them next to a river where otters, salmon and Kingfishers live. We're building them in an area where your commute to work in the City Centre can be a leisurely stroll or bike ride.
There will be greenery, public spaces, shared gardens where you can sit and relax, or just catch up with your neighbours. And we're doing it in collaboration with one of the world leaders in sustainable placemaking, White Arkitekter.
The first houses launch in the Summer, and the first residents will be able to move in by the end of 2017. There's a mix of houses and apartments, 1 - 4 bedrooms, and prices start from £150k.
It's time to change the way we live, work and play in our cities.
Citu Works will combine state of the art manufacturing with innovation while showcasing processes that promote and deliver our purpose: to accelerate the transition to zero carbon cities.
Citu Works opens the start of 2018 and will offer an experiential journey that helps people to understand the impact of climate change and how living in the Climate Innovation District can help the city of Leeds reach its target of reducing carbon emissions by 2050.
