The Green is a large open area of civic space and grass for children to play and adults to relax. It provides a space where the whole Climate Innovation District can come together, and will be perfect for hosting events for the entire community.
Solar Avenue is a wide street built for people, not cars. The lush vegetation of the rain gardens and the timber decked walkway means this car-free landscape maintains a sense of urban buzz without the traffic noise and pollution that is too common in other urban streets. Residents can plant their own rain gardens to give each home along the avenue its own unique identity.
The Secret Garden is a secluded area down by the river, where the only people passing will be the residents of the 22 houses which make up the secret garden, creating a close community where everyone knows each other.
With over forty trees peppering the river bank the Wind in the Willows will be the perfect place for older children to explore and play near the riverside. It is an open, green space with shared gardens and jetties for outside dining or entertaining.
The Otter is the Climate Innovation District’s number one resident. You’ll see him taking his morning swim while you’re relaxing by the riverbank.
A new pedestrian bridge will connect the North and South sides of the Climate Innovation District, giving you easy access to Leeds Dock and the riverside cycle path which takes you straight to the city centre.
The riverside cycle path takes you to Leeds dock in two minutes and Leeds train station in six minutes. When you’re this close to the city centre your stressful daily commute becomes a thing of the past, replaced with a relaxing stroll or brief bike ride.
Phase 2 of the Climate Innovation District will bring residential and commercial together in a way that will redefine how we live, work and play in our cities.
The commercial spaces have the same sustainable features that make a Citu Home one of the most energy-efficient in the world while being in a location that makes it easy for people to live a sustainable lifestyle.
If you’re an organisation that wants to reduce their carbon footprint while remaining in the city centre surrounded by greenery, waterways and wildlife, then we want to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’re now open for initial enquiries on how we can make Phase 2 of the Climate Innovation District an amazing place to live, work and play.
