Ceremony held to mark start of Hudson Quarter construction.

A groundbreaking ceremony has been held to mark the start of construction on the Hudson Quarter development in central York.

The site, owned by Palace Capital and located just off Toft Green, is being redeveloped into new apartments, office space and landscaped grounds.


The two-acre development on the site of the former Hudson House will comprise 127 luxury apartments, 34,500 sq ft of office space and 5,000 sq ft of other commercial uses, located in four buildings around a landscaped central courtyard.

Caddick Construction is the main contractor and is onsite now. Completion is expected by in spring 2021.

To mark the start of construction, the Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu, conducted a ceremonial groundbreaking.

Neil Sinclair, chief executive of Palace Capital, said: “This is a major development for York and we are proud to have the Archbishop with us to formally start the construction work.

“Hudson Quarter will be a luxury new development in one of the best locations in the City and represents a major investment and commitment to York.”

The Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu, added: “I was delighted to conduct a ceremonial ground breaking ceremony at Hudson Quarter. It signals work is starting on this ambitious development in the heart of York that will provide a high quality new place for people to live and work. This site has been under-utilised for many years and these plans will breathe new life into the area. The proposals have a wow factor and I look forward to seeing it being built over the next two years.”
