Residential resilience

Despite a climate of economic uncertainty in 2019, Leeds has seen record breaking delivery in the number of units under construction in the residential and student accommodation sectors. City Centre living continues to develop at pace in Leeds and with a number of notable schemes in the pipeline this trend is expected to continue in 2020.

Key findings


  • Residential units under construction totals 2,832; 70% is build to rent – the greatest amount in Crane Survey history
  • Record numbers for student rooms under construction - 2,799
  • Over half a million sq ft of office space completed - 80% pre-let and has potential to create around 4,000 jobs in the city
