Plans go in for 250,000 sq ft York mixed-use scheme

Residential & Regeneration

Local York developer Helmsley Group has submitted plans for a major mixed-use regeneration project in the heart of the city.

Proposals for the Coney Street Riverside scheme include the creation of 250,000 sq ft of mixed-use retail, leisure, commercial, and residential space and a riverside walkway.

The developer aims to repurpose previously underutilised vacant upper floors for residential and commercial use, and new build elements providing additional student accommodation.

“This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to sensitively regenerate an underappreciated area of York city centre.”

The project team for the scheme includes architect Vincent & Brown, building services consultant Troup Bywaters & Anders and civil & structural consultant Billinghurst George & Partners.
