Leeds is changing at a rapid pace. From skyscrapers peppering the skyline and bold regeneration projects to new business hubs on the outskirts of town and the largest city centre park in the UK, there is a lot to be excited about. And don’t forget the knowledge-rich employment base fuelled by the city’s universities. It is not surprising that Leeds was voted the best city in the north of England to live and work in.
But, like other UK cities, it is still mitigating the deep impact of the past 16 months. So as we continue to emerge from the pandemic, how will Leeds achieve its ambition of becoming the best city in the UK?
• With breakdowns in the city’s transport network and a lack of connectivity between communities, how is Leeds prioritising the future of transport?
• As businesses and employees re-evaluate priorities, what trends has Leeds seen in the office market? Is demand for space outside of the city centre continuing to rise?
• And as we define our new normal, how is technology helping to enhance how we use, own and run buildings?
