Leeds Innovation Arc

Leeds Innovation Arc

The £1.5billion Leeds Innovation Arc will be a city centre science park, formed around the city’s leading universities, the forthcoming, state-of-the-art, new adult’s and children’s hospitals, and major private sector partners.

The Arc will be home to some of the biggest public and private sector organisations in the North of England, including British Library North and the new Innovation Village, creating a world-class hub for research, innovation and technology in health and life sciences in Leeds. It offers prime investment opportunities with 200,000m2 of innovation space, with potential for 3,000 new homes and up to 220,000m2 of public realm improvements, and two new city parks.

Inclusive Growth Leeds
“The Innovation Arc represents one of the largest regeneration schemes in the north of the country and will maintain our strong momentum and growth across the city. It will reinforce our position as a nationally important and internationally recognised economic and knowledge engine, where cutting edge academic research and entrepreneurial businesses come together.”
Dame Linda Pollard, DBE Hon LLD, Chair of Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust (LTHT) and Chair of the Leeds Innovation Partnership.
