Who will build the Leeds Arena?
April 2010 BAM Construction UK will be the preferred contractor for the new Leeds Arena.
Construction is due to start on site later in 2010. The £80m Leeds Arena, which will hold more than 13,000 people, was granted initial planning permission in March 2010.
On the 5th November 2008 the announcement was made to confirm the new Leeds Arena venue location would be behind the Merrion Centre and Yorkshire Bank buildings on Claypit Lane, part of the site was then occupied by an empty building (2008) which was previously part of Leeds Metropolitan University.
