The scheme forms part of a wider £280m masterplan which is being brought forward with Leeds-based property investor and car parking operator, Town Centre Securities (TCS).
The two blocks of 16 and 19 storeys have been designed by Sheppard Robson with spacious terrace gardens overlooking the River Aire and 4,500 sq ft of commercial accommodation at ground floor level.
Construction is due to start next year with a final decision on a main contractor currently under discussion.
Danny Roberts, senior development manager at Glenbrook, said “This decision to grant planning consent for the residential element of Whitehall Riverside will unlock the delivery of the wider masterplan.
“Whitehall Riverside will be a premier, highly sustainable development where people will want to come and spend time both now and in decades to come.
“The design has been carefully considered to create a resilient scheme which is embedded in its surroundings and will encourage an active community. We look forward to starting construction in the new year with completion expected in late 2025.”
