About Monk Bridge

The 665-home development is being constructed on behalf of Highline Investments and will see the creation of five new blocks varying from 12 to 22 storeys in height. All the accommodation will be available as a private rental scheme and will include one, two and three-bed apartments.

Set to transform the south west of Leeds city centre, on the former Monk Bridge steelworks site, just off Whitehall Road, the new scheme borders on to the Leeds-Liverpool canal.

Monk Bridge will make the most of the existing surroundings, using the Victorian viaduct of the defunct Leeds and Thirsk railway to create a new plaza providing seamless entry to the city centre. The existing railway arches below will also be renovated to provide space for retail and hospitality businesses.

The Monk Bridge site has scored consistently excellent scores with the Considerate Constructors Scheme, ranging from 45-47 which is one of the highest scores in the country and reflects this sites approach to the workforce, wider community and health and safety.
