The multi-million pound development and regeneration of Leicester is making our city an investment hot spot and a great place to build and develop your business.

Leicester is one of Britain’s most attractive and cost-effective places to develop, own or lease commercial property, making us the ideal destination for your business to thrive and grow. We have some fantastic projects underway in the city.

Leicester Waterside comprises over fifty hectares of large scale mixed-use regeneration opportunities and is bordered by an attractive stretch of the River Soar and the Grand Union Canal. The area will be home to high quality housing, smaller office and high value light commercial space, independent retailers, and leisure uses. Leicester City Council is leading the regeneration of the area with a £6.5m investment in the restoration and conversion of the historic Friars Mill to managed workspace.

Ashton Green is a major sustainable urban extension for Leicester – a housing-led mixed use development of up to 3,000 homes with an emphasis on high quality design, low/zero carbon homes, public transport improvements and extensive green infrastructure. Once again Leicester City Council is leading the way with delivery of the enabling infrastructure and the phased release of residential development parcels. Ashton Green is in a superb location with good access to the city centre and is within easy reach of some of the county’s finest countryside.
