The regeneration of South Bank will provide excellent employment opportunities, generating 35,000 new jobs.   South Bank will double the size and economic impact of the city centre. Work experience, apprenticeships and skills training opportunities via the onsite Learning Hub are being made available to students at Leeds College of Building, Leeds City College, University Technical College and Ruth Gorse Academy which are all adjacent to the site.

We have planning permission for 928 new homes across a number of phases at Points Cross, a minimum 35% of which will be affordable housing.

We started on site with Phase 1 (311 homes for shared ownership and social rent) in March 2021 and the first two blocks will complete late Spring 2023. The blocks will also include a high quality public realm, commercial and retail spaces for compatible uses such as a café, residents gym and some office space, enabling Guinness to play its part in the delivery of a vibrant new neighbourhood.

The development reinforces Guinness’ commitment to prioritising the regeneration of large brownfield sites.
