York’s latest landmark development opportunity is being officially launched for sale at an event today (6th July 2011) at The Royal York Hotel.

Alps Commercial will bring to market this rare opportunity on behalf of Nestlé to a group of VIP’s next week, revealing a unique site within one of York City Council’s Conservation Areas.

The Cocoa Works has everything developers and investors are looking for; location, heritage and prestige.

The site itself sits between Haxby Road and Wigginton Road, to the North of York City Centre, with enviable views of the stunning York Minster.

The launch is the culmination of a project that aims to create a high-quality sustainable development and a new diverse urban community in the heart of York.

CEO of Alps, Peter Alcock, said:

“This is a truly rare and exciting development opportunity in one of the UK’s best loved cities.

"We have already had a lot of interest in this site and we believe this is an exemplar project for the city and the region.

"Thanks to the partnership Nestlé and its consultants have forged with the City Council, the Planners will support the creation of a stunning new mixed-use development in which people can work, live and play.”

The Cocoa Works is anything but a standard mixed use development site, it’s a fantastic and rare opportunity to make headline property news.

Its unique location and surrounding areas enables interaction between residents, businesses, students and visitors on a public and private level.

Dave Bruce, Nestlé Business Services Director said:

“We are looking for a developer who will deliver high quality and sustainable urban community buildings.

"We are very excited about the potential impact this site will have on the City from the investment and the hundreds of jobs created.”

The opportunity that will be presented will consist of 16.75 acres which is mainly cleared ready for development with fascinating retained buildings which present an exciting opportunity for conversion.

The Cocoa Works site has outline planning consent for commercial offices, retail, family.
