The Palace Capital owned site, located just off Toft Green, is being transformed into new apartments, office space and landscaped grounds which will create vibrant a new quarter in the heart of the city.
The two-acre development on the site of the former Hudson House includes 127 luxury apartments, 34,500 sq ft of Grade-A office space and 5,000 sq ft of other commercial uses, located in four buildings around a landscaped central courtyard. Caddick Construction is the main contractor and is onsite now. Completion is expected by in spring 2021.
Neil Sinclair, CEO of Palace Capital plc, said: “This is a major development for York and we are proud to have the Archbishop with us to formally start the construction work.
“Hudson Quarter will be a luxury new development in one of the best locations in the City and represents a major investment and commitment to York.”
The Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu said: “I was delighted to conduct a ceremonial ground breaking ceremony at Hudson Quarter. 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. This site has been under- utilised for many years and these plans will breathe new life into the area. The proposals have a wow factor and I look forward to seeing it being built over the next two years.”
Hudson Quarter will also include a new landscaped link from the railway station, opposite the site, through to Toft Green.
