Thorpe Park, Leeds is an award-winning, mixed-use business park located off the M1 in East Leeds which is home to over 1m sq ft of high-quality office space, and a working population of 5,500 people employed by more than 100 local, national and international businesses.

A further 1 million sq ft of developable space and 300 homes are planned for development, creating one of the largest and most diverse out of town business locations in the UK. The Park’s 300 acres will comprise an unrivalled mix of business and supporting amenity uses, including 150 acres of parkland public realm in a well-connected strategic location.

Thorpe Park sits at the heart of the City Region’s most significant growth area and will bring even greater diversity to Leeds’ offer to the local and national business community. This major city extension is served by the East Leeds Orbital Route (ELOR), a new dual carriageway connection to Junction 46 of the M1 directly through Thorpe Park.

An extensive area to the north of the Park has been allocated for up to 7,000 new homes. Thus, this is the largest single area of housing proposed within the total allocation for East Leeds, with up to 19,000 new homes planned.

The centrepiece of the infrastructure improvement works at Thorpe Park Leeds will be the opening of the new East Leeds Parkway railway station and associated park and ride facility, which is programmed for 2025. With journey times from the Park into Leeds City Centre of eight minutes, and access to the wider rail network, Thorpe Park Leeds will be the best connected and most flexible of business environments.

The latest building to be delivered at Thorpe Park Leeds, B3, comprises 133,117 sq ft of state-of-the-art workspace. Pre-let in its entirety to leading credit management company, Lowell it is the largest single out of town office deal ever recorded in West Yorkshire and the biggest property transaction in the Northern Powerhouse region over the last two years.

Aside from its size, B3 is notable for its strong ESG credentials, having been delivered in line with the very latest human health and wellbeing standards, with an environmental performance rating of BREEAM ‘Excellent’ and an EPC ‘A’ rating.

Our Fabric First design approach also features hidden elements in the construction process and the structure of the building itself that have helped to significantly reduce its embodied carbon footprint. Interventions include the use of 75 percent post-consumer recycled aluminium in the building’s envelope, up to 50 per cent reduction in the use of concrete for pile foundations and building slabs, and 25 percent of the British Steel used in the structure is from recycled content.

“Excellent schemes like Thorpe Park are why Leeds has recently come out at the top of studies about inclusive growth, housing investment and quality of life. We work in very active partnership with our business partners to make sure that in Leeds projects are delivered on time and on budget and in a way that maximises the benefit to local people.”

Tom Riordan, Chief Executive of Leeds City Council
