The Story of Leeds Dock
In 2012 Allied London bought what was then known as Clarence Dock. We had a vision to take the existing area and re-brand, re-invest and create Leeds’ first tech, media and creative industries hub: Leeds Dock.
Allied London’s placemaking strategy has established Leeds Dock as a key destination in the city for enterprise, community and culture. Today, we have a great portfolio of contemporary creative workspace, complemented by independent food and drink operators, a yoga studio, a progressive gym and the Royal Armouries Museum. Leeds Dock is proud to be home of eleven digital and tech companies, as well as Sky’s Digital HQ, whose building won the 2017 British Council for Offices Award for Innovation.
We have over 1,800 residents, an on-site workforce in excess of 2,000, and work closely with key stakeholders and cultural partners such as the Lumen Prize, Light Night and the Royal Armouries to provide a programme of cultural events and activity across the estate and throughout the city.
Allied London has achieved its vision by developing a city centre village and new community for the media, technology and the creative industries. We’re committed to building on these successes and driving the future of Leeds Dock. The creative and media community will grow as our new spaces are created, which include floating workspace boats, an events platform on the water, and a new life for the buildings with untapped potential.
