The Arc is a series of innovation neighbourhoods, formed around the natural anchors of our main universities, the proposed adult and children’s hospitals, and major private sector partners.

Set across 150 hectares of the city centre the Arc will stitch together some of the most significant innovation assets in the north of England.

There will be over 3000 new homes in and around the Arc and the potential for up to 220,000m2 of public realm improvements as well as space for two new city parks creating 4 hectares of new, meaningful green space.
