10:56am 21st February 2014
A £150 million plan to re-develop the Hungate area of York took a major step forward after planning approval was given for195 new homes.
Work on the 195 one to three-bedroom apartments is scheduled to start in the summer of 2014.
The riverside scheme is located a short two minute walk from the heart of York and is the only new residential development currently underway inside the city’s historic walls.
Richard Cook, from developers Lend Lease said: “We have been working closely with City of York Council during the planning process to incorporate the views of the public as well as York Archaeological Trust who have been leading the archaeological preservation of the site.”
“These new homes have been designed by our architects Weedon Partnership to offer residents fantastic views both of the river, and of the historic city. The quality of the architecture means the homes feature a modern design whilst being sympathetic to the surrounding city. Residents will also enjoy a high standard of finishes by our interior designers Tegerdine Associates of London. As the only residential development currently underway within the city’s walls, we expect interest to be high and would encourage interested homebuyers to get in touch with our sales team.”
The homes will be built in one of the most historic parts of York with the site being the subject of a major archaeological dig conducted by York Archaeological Trust, which revealed artefacts dating back to the Roman period.
