Leeds firm gets £43m data centre OK
Six-storey building part of wider masterplan
Local practice Garnett Netherwood Architects has won planning permission for a new data centre in the centre of Leeds.
It is the first phase of a masterplan for a former manufacturing and industrial site in the South Bank area of Leeds.
The new £43 million data centre, for client Yorkshire Design Group, will be comprised of two towers linked via a glazed central core, each with four floors of data halls.
The six-storey building will be clad in pre-weathered zinc panels, with a band of black brick on the ground floor.
The 11,600sq m building is the first phase in a wider masterplan for the site.
