Leeds is the United Kingdom's fastest growing city.[dead link] This growth is reflected in the increasingly prominent skyline of the city. Leeds currently has two buildings over 100 metres in height, with other tall buildings planned for the future.
As is the case with many British cities, much of Leeds's skyline comprises 1960s residential tower blocks. However, current development trends include upmarket apartments and expanding office space to facilitate economic growth.
Currently, the tallest building in Leeds is Bridgewater Place at 112 m. Proposed high-rise buildings include Lumiere which began construction in early 2007 prior to its postponement in July 2008. The Criterion Place twin-tower complex (180 m and 118 m) was also proposed for construction but has been cancelled due to the prevailing economic conditions.
EMI Westgate Tower, 120–140 metres, 36 storeys (circa 1970, around metres in height, cancelled for excessive height, site now occupied by 1980s Westgate Point development) 
Triple Five Leeds Development - Height unknown (circa 1989, planned complex in Holbeck including shopping, residential and offices which was to include a number of high rise buildings of unspecified height, cancelled)
