UK: Developer The Parklane Group has revealed plans for a £160 million mixed-use project called INC.

The proposed 33-storey development at the western gateway to Leeds City Centre will feature a mix of commercial, residential and leisure facilities including a 198 unit aparthotel, 163 privately rented apartments, 200 co-living apartments, almost 4,000 square metres of co-working space, a bar and restaurant, swimming pool, gym and retail facilities.

International architect and engineering firm BDP has been appointed to develop the design for INC, which will be showcased at next week's MIPIM event in Cannes, as one of Leeds City Region's prime investment opportunities.

Parklane Group director Naveen Ahmed said: "INC in Leeds has been designed to be a city defining development, providing a step change in the PRS, co-working, hospitality and retail offer across the north of England. Our vision is formed around not only developing world class facilities, but creating a lifestyle that fits the aspirations of the innovative and dynamic businesses and people in our city. Our ambition for INC in Leeds is to create a stand-out building in the North of England, competing with schemes with a national and international profile. We want this landmark building to become an asset for the city, with accessible public space that enhances the community and offers premier facilities under one roof. This development will be the first of its kind in the UK and a concept that can be rolled out in other cities across the country and internationally."

Leading the Leeds City Region delegation to MIPIM, Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (LEP) chair Roger Marsh, said: "Wellington Street in Leeds has seen growing investment interest over the past few years and this part of the city has become a prime investment location for global businesses. The vision for INC in Leeds complements the investment opportunities we have in this part of the city and proposes a unique offer to businesses and people. I look forward to hearing more about this investment proposition as part of the Leeds City Region presence at MIPIM."

The Parklane Group is the parent company of the Roomzzz aparthotel brand.
