Building on the success of its renowned Broadcasting Place development, Downing has delivered a second £67 million student accommodation scheme in Leeds city centre. Central Village brings another 981 high quality student bedrooms to the city's robust student market across two phases, along with additional retail facilities. Downing secured a significant pre-let agreement with The University of Leeds. The six year lease was agreed more than half a year ahead of the September 2012 opening of phase 1.
Ideally located in the heart of the Leeds higher education quarter, and only 5 minutes from Leeds main shopping and leisure centres, the redevelopment is a mixture of major refurbishment and new build accommodation, transforming the former university campus site into four high quality buildings designed by the acclaimed John McAslan + Partners.
Phase 1 has seen the completion of a 568-bed student village, ground floor retail space, and extensive public realm. Phase 2 features a further 413 en-suite rooms in a magnificent 18 storey, new build tower.
Downing also secured a deal to bring retail giant Tesco to Central Village, in a 4500 sq ft Tesco Express store, offering additional life style facilities to resident students.

STATUS Phase 1 completed August 2012, Phase 2 on site for completion August 2014
