Victoria Gate is an exciting addition to the vibrant shopping scene in Leeds. Delivering John Lewis’s first store in the city, the first phase will capture the heritage of the Victoria Quarter and offer a range of high quality and designer brands.
The detailed designs for phase one include three main buildings:
A flagship John Lewis store, with a striking facade drawing on Leeds’ textile heritage
Victoria Gate arcade, with stores, restaurants, cafes and leisure space in an elegantly designed two street arcade linking Victoria Quarter to the John Lewis store
A multi-storey car park for up to 800 cars
Alongside regenerating the physical space, the first phase will also deliver up to 1,000 retail and hospitality jobs and 1,000 construction employment opportunities.
Victoria Gate will in total accommodate around 42,000m² of retail and leisure space. The second phase will include additional retail for major high street brands, leisure space, restaurants and a food court, additional parking spaces and a Low Carbon Energy Centre.
