The development proposals include 90,000 sq ft of office accommodation split into two blocks of five storeys and a 600 space multi-storey car park that includes a large health and fitness gym.
The scheme will also include an urban park in the centre of the development.
Andrew Gardner, partner at DLG Architects, said: "It's taken a lot of hard work to get to this stage in difficult times, so we are extremely pleased to receive approval for our plans. It will unlock the development potential of this key site and be a real boost for Holbeck Urban Village.
"There are a number of planning consents in existence for sites in close proximity to this one and we believe the multi-storey car park is an important element of the area's regeneration.
"We have been supported by a number of existing businesses in Holbeck that all share the view that providing safe secure parking will encourage more business into the area and help eliminate much of the illegal street parking."
