Summary: Balfour Beatty and Leeds City Council are seeking a multi-disciplinary design team to redevelop Leeds City Square and create a world-class and vibrant piece of inclusive public realm, which responds positively to the city’s diverse population, cultural richness and to the city’s climate change ambitions.

Description: Leeds is a dynamic and attractive city with a walkable city centre. The true nature of its architecture and spaces are best experienced on foot or by bicycle. Currently, areas of the city centre prioritise vehicle movement and do not sufficiently cater for people seeking space to relax, shop, exercise, cycle and play.

City Square is a piece of public realm which welcomes people to Leeds City Centre. It is often the first ‘experience’ most people have of Leeds when arriving in the city and is a key gateway for most visitors and workers.

At the first phase, the competition is seeking expressions of interest in response to the Memorandum of Information document. It is anticipated that up to five teams will be shortlisted and invited to participate in the design phase of the competition.
