Carillion to build Lumiere Development

Carillion has secured a four-year contract worth £155m to build two high-rise towers in Leeds that will be the tallest residential development in Europe.


Carillion has secured a £155m contract for the construction of the Lumiere Development in Leeds for Lumiere, a joint venture between KW Linfoot and the Frasers Property Group.



The four-year contract involves the construction of two mixed-use high-rise towers in the west end area of Leeds.



Tower One will be 55 stories and Tower Two, 32 storeys. When complete, the project will be the latest to hold the title of tallest residential development in Europe.



Tower One will house retail units at ground and mezzanine levels with the remaining floors predominantly dedicated to private apartments designed by Philippe Starck.



Tower Two will also house retail units at ground and mezzanine levels with commercial office space between levels one and ten. The upper floors will comprise serviced and private apartments for the over fifty-fives.



An enclosed winter garden will link the two towers at ground floor level and car parking will be provided at three basement levels.
