Work Started On Large-Scale York Development

A multi-purpose redevelopment project has been launched in York, with the Archbishop recently marking the first day of construction of the large-scale initiative.

Last week, the Archbishop of York Dr John Sentamu officially launched the Hudson Quarter site in Central York, which will consist of 127 residential apartments, 35,000-square feet of office space, and 5,000-square feet of other commercial premises.

Palace Capital, which owns the site, has said this is a “major development for York”, with the two-acre site also including a central courtyard and a landscaped link from the railway station to Toft Green.

It will see the former Hudson House, which was originally used as British Rail offices, undergo a major redevelopment, demonstrating the considerable investment being put into the Yorkshire city.

Chief executive officer of Palace Capital Neil Sinclair said: “We are proud to have the Archbishop with us to formally start the construction of the work.”

Dr Sentamu himself was reported by the newspaper as saying he was “delighted” to be part of the ground-breaking ceremony, adding: “It signals work is starting on this ambitious development in the heart of York that will provide a high-quality new place for people to live and work.”

He went on to say the site had not been utilised to its full potential over the last few years, and this new project will “breathe new life into the area”.

Plans for the mixed-use development were approved in August 2017 by the City of York Council’s Planning Committee, and demolition work began a year later in October 2018.
