Second phase of Hungate gets green light

DELIVERY of the second phase of Hungate, a £150m residential led mixed-use development, has taken a major step forward following detailed planning consent for 195 new homes.

The development, within the city of York’s historic walls, is owned by Hungate Regeneration – a joint venture between Lend Lease, the integrated property and infrastructure group, and Evans Property Group. Construction is scheduled to start in the summer.

Richard Cook, Lend Lease’s head of residential, 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.”
