A prime retail destination and cultural centre, Leeds is the engine for growth and employment at the heart of an increasingly prosperous region. Leeds city centre is set for major changes over the next few years with HS2 being the catalyst for visionary developments such as the Southbank, Holbeck urban village together with the development of an innovative integrated public transport network.

Working closely with bodies such as the City Council, The University of Leeds, and the West Yorkshire and York Combined Authority, Arup’s involvement in the future development of the Leeds City region is centered around a commitment to helping shape sustainable communities.
