Yorkshire and the Humber

Sitting directly north of the East Midlands, Yorkshire and the Humber has a history strongly connected to the steel, coal and farming industries. Although still a major player in the UK’s energy industry, the region is still adjusting to the move towards cleaner fuels and cheap steel imports. However, Leeds is a thriving finance and business hub, while Sheffield has enjoyed a strong resurgence in recent years as a centre for the creative arts and music. Grimsby is the centre of the UK’s fishing industry, with agriculture and food processing also providing a major source of income for the region.

West Yorkshire

West Yorkshire constitutes five metropolitan boroughs: City of Bradford, City of Leeds, Calderdale, Kirklees and City of Wakefield. Bradford, Halifax and Huddersfield were strongly connected to England’s wool industry, with much of their history and architecture dictated by it, while Leeds and the south of the county are more connected to heavy engineering industries.

This is a wonderful area to live in. It has outstanding schools,a lovely town centre with lots of shops,florists,gift shops etc. We have a train station in the town centre too. Lovely countryside walks and woods to explore.

Please review your development:

The development in general is fine. We’ve been here 3 years and still waiting for bits to be finished,feels like once the last house was finished we were abandoned. There is a small play area but is fully overgrown and unusable and the bins are overflowing.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

I wish the build quality was a bit higher. There doesn’t seem to be much attention to detail unfortunately and the estate has been left in an unfinished state.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

They are quite slow to respond and have come out to the same issue more than once which I wish they’d just sorted properly in the first place.

Definitely recommend!

Review Date Sep 2022

Leodis Square is in a great location as it is only a 10min walk to the city centre yet also right next to the m621. noise is minimal given the location and there is plenty of access to shops/restaurants etc as it is so close to Leeds city centre.

Please review your development:

I lived in Daniels House for just over a year and struggle to fault it, great value for money, location is right next to the motorways yet only a 10min walk from the city centre. The actual building itself is clean, the flats are spacious and the building has a lovely bar/pub and a gym attached to it. I always found the staff really helpful whether it be needing to print something off, helping to find a missing parcel or dealing with complaints. Definitely recommend!

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

parking can be difficult, have a guaranteed secure spot nearby before you move in.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

staff gave fast and appropriate responses to any issues.

The Place to Live in Leeds

Review Date Sep 2022

Leodis Square is very central whilst offering reasonable prices. The apartments are approximately a 10 minute walk from Leeds City Centre train station, less than 10 minute walk to Crown Point Shopping centre. There is secure on-site underground parking available for an additional cost. There are plenty of industrial bins, including recycling bins that are emptied regularly and are never overflowing. The noise levels are what you should expect for an apartment located in City Centre but the apartments themselves are built to reduce the noise levels and there is very little disturbance when in the apartment itself. There is a new cafe/bar recently opened on-site, that has quiz nights, bingo nights, etc.

Please review your development:

The apartments are very modern, clean and spacious with either a patio space or a balcony. There is also a courtyard with plants and greenery that is well-kept and maintained. There is an on-site gym which includes a lot of equipment and has a small studio space. There is a cinema/club room with a functioning kitchen space that we are able to book for free to host friends and family for dinner, parties or movie nights. There is a residents space that is open 24/7 as a space to work/relax. There is a locked parcel room where all deliveries are kept, you receive a code that grants you access to the room to collect the parcels.

The Customer Service team are available 24/7 to support and answer any queries. Whenever I have needed to email the team, I have always received a prompt informative response. Julia Anderson, who works in the customer service team, always goes above and beyond to assist in any way she possibly can, always giving a warm friendly welcome upon arrival into the Residents Hub, and her knowledge of the services Dandara can provide are second to none. She is always willing to support in any way she possibly can.

There are monthly events for residents to attend such as book club, breakfast club, and events to celebrate special occasions such as Easter, The Queens Jubilee. A member of the team, Simon, recently organised an event to celebrate Leeds Pride, there was a Drag Queen DJing with food and beverages for the residents, this event had a really good turnout. This level of customer service makes the apartment complex feel much more like we are a community.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

I wish I had known about the property development sooner, as I was previously paying a similar price for an outdated apartment with poor customer service from the letting agents.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

All issues I’ve raised so far have been responded to in a timely professional manner, and there is always someone to speak to at the front desk if any problems required an immediate response.

The location is ideal, local to everything including bars, restaurants, cinemas, the town centre and the train station. The only downfall is the anti social teens who spend the evenings making noise, smoking and skating up and down, but I know there’s nothing that can be done by Moda about that.

Please review your development:

I would like to start by saying a huge thank you to the staff, I’ve recently had a baby, something I hadn’t discussed with them however upon noticing I was no longer pregnant and seeing me with my son, my partner and I received a card congratulating us on his birth. It was completely unexpected and something that made us genuinely happy. So again, thank you to whoever sent us this!

I would also like to add that whilst I haven’t yet attended one, the events that are put on seem really good. I love that there are so many and that I can keep up to date with these via the app. I look forward to getting around to actually take part in some of the things put on and hope they continue.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

I’m not sure to be entirely honest, I haven’t had any problems.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

I haven’t raised any issues yet however know how to do this.

Aw you’re more than welcome. We cant wait to meet your little one properly.

Thanks for the lovely review. We’re working closely with the college & Playhouse to make the area less attractive to the skateboarders & hopefully now the works outside the Playhouse have started it will put them off a little.
