Build progress1

Homebuyers, investors and the people of Leeds have been given their first glimpse of a new £23.5 million city centre apartment development, after its scaffolding and site hoardings were taken down as the scheme approaches completion.

This follows last month’s topping out of The Residence, which sits at the very eastern end of Kirkstall Road. The development by KMRE Group, consists of 111, one, two and three bedroom apartments, as well as two penthouses with large terraces and stunning views across Leeds and beyond. The ground floor of the development offers 2,400 sq ft of commercial space and there are also 25 parking spaces.

More than two thirds of the homes in the 10-storey building, which are being marketed by Linley & Simpson with Morgans, are already reserved and KMRE Group has just launched a new website to showcase the development. Visitors to benefit from up to date information about apartment availability, as well as full details on the development and its specification.

Kam Mogul, managing director at KMRE, said: “The Residence is progressing well and the topping out of the development, as well as the scaffolding and site hoarding removal, are significant milestones that have given people their first opportunity to see how our landmark building looks. The response from both our buyers and the Leeds community, has been extremely positive.

“The Residence will be the first development to complete on the Kirkstall Road corridor, which will soon benefit from hundreds of millions of pounds worth of investment and development that will create thousands of new homes and a vibrant community in the area. We’re extremely proud to be setting a benchmark with The Residence for surrounding developments to follow.”

Jonathan Morgan, from Linley & Simpson with Morgans, said: “The scale, height and quality of The Residence have already made a statement in this part of the city as a number of other schemes are set to come forward.

“Following the topping out of the development, buyers can now also experience the ninth and tenth floor duplex penthouses for themselves. These are some of the most exciting apartments currently being built in the city centre and offer split level, open plan living areas with the bedrooms on the lower levels so that the living areas get the benefit of the generous roof terraces with city and skyline views.”

The Residence is an easy walk to the LGI and Law Courts which are 12-minutes away, the railway station is a 15-minute walk and Leeds University or Holbeck Urban Village along the canal are both around a 16-minute walk.

Apartments at The Residence start at £152,000 and the three bedroom penthouses, with generous south facing terraces, are priced from £463,000. For further information visit or
