Hull City Centre For 2,500 New Homes By 2019
It seems that soon the best Burflex scaffolding Hull has to offer may be busy, as 2,500 new homes are planned for the city centre by 2019.
According to the Hull Daily Mail, it’s an upturn in fortunes for the area, which had three huge high rise projects on the drawing board before the financial crash in 2008. However, where these projects, worth nearly £200 million stalled, new projects in Hull are helping meet demand in the area.
The Queens Garden police station is the first site to begotten ahead of transformation into 94 apartments with a gym and private cinema. These apartments are scheduled for completion at the end of 2019.
Another 100 new homes are being started early 2018 at the Fruit Market, making up part of a new urban village.
Other development sites include Kingston House on Bond Street and Albion Square.
Mark Jones, the city council’s regeneration director, said the council’s strategy is focusing on residential projects at the moment: “There has been a shift from retail towards living space and leisure in the city centre in recent years and it’s important for investors to see the council is delivering on its rhetoric.”
Where city centre’s were once the focus of retail alone, more and more important to areas is ‘city living’. Hull’s status as City of culture for 2017 has no doubt made the city centre a more attractive place to live, however Hull councillors admitted that living in the city above shops is something they are less used to compared to bigger cities such as Leeds.
