AN EXCITING NEW NEIGHBOURHOOD
THAT PROVIDES A HOME AND HEART FOR LEEDS’ CONTEMPORARY CULTURAL SCENE.

There’s something big happening right on the doorstep to our new home at Ripon House. For the first time ever, the neighbours that surround the old Quarry Hill site – sometimes known as the ‘cultural quarter’ – are joining forces to establish one of the very best places to live, work, enjoy and be entertained in Leeds.

All this is happening alongside Caddick Development’s plans to build new spaces – from luxury modern living to new bars and restaurants, as well as some of the biggest public green spaces inside the city centre. With the first new development, Moda Living, starting on site in spring 2018.
