Cradled in a bend of the River Foss and neighbouring the Hungate nature reserve, Lendlease and joint venture partner, Evans Property Group, are delivering a total of 1,025 new homes within the ancient York city walls – with many offering the luxury and escapism benefits that comes with riverside living.
Breathing new life into one of the last remaining underutilised sites in the area, Hungate is one of the largest residential projects underway in Yorkshire on the last brownfield site within the City Walls, where property is in greatest demand. Still only a stone’s throw from the bustling city centre – moments from the shopping district and a short walk to York railway station.
Offering a choice of one, two and three bedroom apartments, Hungate provides purchasers a range of sustainable properties, each apartment is designed with open plan kitchen, dining and living area. Kitchens are finished with stone work surfaces and contemporary units and come fully fitted with high quality energy-efficient appliances including stainless steel oven, integrated fridge/freezer, dishwasher and microwave.
Hungate represents an exciting future as a thriving new community with sustainability at its heart. Residents will have full access to the viewing platform at the organically growing Hungate nature reserve, a secluded area that is to be left to ‘run wild’ and encourage a habitat of wildlife within the city walls, showcasing exclusive views across the iridescent Yorkshire landscape
Extending the existing cobbled York paths and winding roads, Hungate will also include approximately 20,000 sq ft of new retail space. This will revitalise the site's existing streetscape with active shop frontages and extend the city's popular shopping scene into the area.
