'Topping out' success for major York development

Hudson Quarter’s highest beam has now been put in place thus reaching the traditional ‘topping out’ of a major York development.

It is located opposite York Railway Station. next to the City Walls. The scheme is supposedly on track and on schedule, with contractors having been on site for nine months.

The Palace Capital plc-owned site has appointed Caddick Construction as the main contractor, that will see 127 apartments, 35,000 sq ft of office accommodation and commercial space delivered, as well as a landscaped courtyard and route through from the Railway Station to Toft Green.

Neil Sinclair, chief executive of listed property company Palace Capital plc, said: “This is an exciting stage in the construction of an iconic development for York.

“The ‘topping out’ is a significant milestone, as we continue to make great progress on the site, which is on schedule to be completed by the end of next year, as planned. Interest in both the offices and apartments has far exceeded our expectations.”

Caddick Construction is the main contractor on the site of the £35m build project and the whole development is due to complete by the end of 2021, with occupation expected in early 2021.

It is said that 35,000 sq ft of air-conditioned office space is being marketed by joint agents JLL and Sanderson Weatherall.

Andrew Murray, Caddick Construction’s MD, added: “This has been a very rewarding project that the Caddick team have really enjoyed from Day One.

“This was a dormant site but with so much potential. It now has a very bright future bringing much-needed homes, office and commercial space into the heart of York’s city centre.

“The fact it is right next to York Railway Station also gives it incredibly strong sustainability credentials.”
