The UK’s largest listed provider of private rental homes, Grainger plc, is expanding its portfolio of build to rent properties in Leeds, with a stylish new residential development, Pin Yard, designed exclusively for the modern-day renter.
Launching in February 2022, the new purpose-built rental development features an impressive 216 high quality rental homes, comprising a mix of one, two, and three-bedroom apartments.
Located on Siddall Street in the city’s Holbeck Urban Village area, the 11-storey property is conveniently located a short 10-minute walk from all city centre amenities, including Leeds Station, popular shopping centre Trinity Leeds and eating district, Call Lane.
Building on the success of The Headline, Grainger’s most Build-to-Rent property which launched in August 2021 on grounds of the former Yorkshire Post building and leased up in record time; Grainger is expanding its residential offering in Leeds responding to high demand with the Pin Yard, part of an exciting regeneration in the Holbeck Urban Village area.
Grainger’s Pin Yard features a range of high-class amenities, including a resident’s lounge, co-working space, well equipped gym, outdoor courtyard and events space – all of which are included within the rent.
The resident’s lounge and co-working amenity spaces have been designed to champion the heritage of the Holbeck Urban Village with a colourful, vibrant colour palette and robust, exposed details and raw materials celebrating the area’s rich industrial character.
Sustainability is also integral to the design of Pin Yard, with superfast Wi-Fi and smart-phone charging points in the co-working spaces powered by roof solar panels. The private outdoor courtyard covers over 3,500 sq. ft and is perfect for those warmer summer months, with picnic benches and seating for all residents to enjoy.
With safety and security a key concern for most renters, Grainger’s best in class security offering at the Pin Yard is designed to give residents peace of mind and a safe, secure home.
Complete with an inhouse Resident Services team and onsite handy person on hand to help with any resident requests, a programme of social activities has been set up to help build the community spirit, from cooking with chefs, to cocktail nights, to yoga and HIIT classes – there will be something for everyone at Pin Yard.
Helen Gordon, Chief Executive at Grainger said: “Leeds is a great city that continues to attract and retain an influx of professionals and families, creating a strong demand for professionally managed, high rental homes.
“Pin Yard provides an excellent solution for those looking for a lovely home with additional amenities in the creative centre of Leeds.
“At Grainger we offer residents more than just an apartment – a home, a hassle-free rental experience, and the opportunity to be part of a thriving new community.”
“We are really looking forward to launching Pin Yard and seeing our residents settle into their new homes, bringing new life to the neighbourhood.”
The stylish new homes at Pin Yard come equipped with modern furniture, a huge range of additional amenities and start at just £830 per calendar month.
