Construction is well underway in the canal basin as the new City Inns hotel and nearly 300 apartments take shape. Developers ISI already have a number of occupiers lines up for the ground floors including Shogun Teppanyaki and the Fifteen Restaurant and have welcomed the news recently that funding has been secured for the southern entrance to the railway station. Rumours abound about the ultimate location of the new Leeds Arena and it is distinctly possible that this will be sited in Holbeck, making the new access even more significant.
