Downing Property Services has put forward plans to build two student accommodation blocks in Leeds.

Located on the Yorkshire Bank site in the city centre, the project consists of one student block rising to 38 storeys and another likely to be 18 storeys tall. In total, the scheme will be able to accommodate 1,271 students.

The development will also feature a multi-purpose events space with a floor area of approximately 9,900 square metres.

The plans are only at the pre-application stage, with details likely to be submitted in the months ahead.
