Barratt Homes has secured a major development site in Adel, Leeds.
Barratt Homes has acquired the first phase of land on the old Bodington Hall site, previously owned by the University of Leeds.
The first phase will comprise 106 properties, which will be developed under Barratt's David Wilson brand. Until December 2012, the site was the largest student accommodation development of its kind, with many amenities including a shop, bar, gym and parking facilities.
Dave Hudson, technical director for Barratt in West Yorkshire, said: "We are delighted to have secured this high profile project in Leeds. Barratt has a strong track record of delivering new homes in Yorkshire and our capability to design and build homes that house hunters want has certainly given us a competitive advantage on this occasion.
"Our Yorkshire portfolio is expanding fast with 14 new schemes in the pipeline for 2013 that will provide 1,700 much-needed new homes."
Sam Wood, sales director for Barratt in Yorkshire, added: "One of the key issues for anyone buying a home continues to be getting the right mortgage. NewBuy, the 95 per cent mortgage backed by the Government, is only available on new build homes, which means customers - both first time buyers and home movers - only need a 5 per cent deposit."
