Caddick Developments, the company behind the £400 million Trinity Leeds shopping centre, is to invest £300 million to regenerate the centre of Leeds, creating a new scheme branded as SOYO, with the opportunity for this identity to be adopted by the wider neighbourhood.

The historic six-acre Quarry Hill site will be turned into a new cultural heart centred around the West Yorkshire Playhouse, BBC, Leeds College of Music and Leeds City College. SOYO aims to bring a sense of New York’s East Village and San Francisco’s SoMa districts to Yorkshire.

SOYO will also create hundreds of new homes, restaurants, bars, commercial space for start-ups as well as a hotel and new public space, which the developer hopes can be used for outdoor theatre and music events, attracting local bands and artists.

High quality rental housing will form a key part of the SOYO vision, with 515 apartments purpose built for rent delivered by Moda Living. Designed by award winning DLG Architects, homes will be spread across two 16-storey blocks and the twin buildings will include 9,000 sq. ft. of commercial space.

Myles Hartley, Managing Director, says, “There is a huge amount happening in this area. As well as delivering our own scheme under the SoYo name we are working alongside our cultural neighbours, to create a wider place identity.”
