With more than 13,600 people employed in the creative and digital media sector, Leeds is shaping up to be one of the UK’s hot spots for innovation and creativity in a digital era. And nowhere showcases this impressive array of talent better than the urban village, leading a creative revolution south of the city.
Just a few minutes walk from Leeds Railway Station and the neighbouring residential community of Holbeck, the urban village is fast becoming one of the coolest corners of the city. From sky lounges and art galleries to gastro pubs and micro breweries there’s plenty to sample.
The vision for this up and coming area of Leeds is more than the creation of buildings, offices and apartments. Holbeck Urban Village is bringing sustainable development to the edges of the city centre and opening up some of the city’s oldest and most treasured buildings.
