Developer announced for York Central

Homes England and Network Rail have selected McLaren Property and Arlington Real Estate as the preferred developer for their major brownfield scheme, York Central.    

York Central is being brought forward by a partnership between Homes England, Network Rail, the City of York Council and the National Railway Museum. The scheme has the potential to significantly boost the local economy by creating up to 6,500 jobs and delivering over £1.1bn of Gross Value Added to the economy of York per annum.   

York Central is a 45-acre site, that will deliver up to 2,500 homes, 20% of which will be affordable and create up to 1m sqft of commercial space for offices, retail and leisure. There are already £135m of infrastructure works underway to enable this major regional scheme to progress. These include over 3km of new roads, footpaths, cycleways and also include two new bridges over the East Coast Main Line.   

Robin Dobson, group property director at Network Rail, said: “This is a strategic step forward in the regeneration of over 110 acres of underused railway land to deliver significant investment and social value for the City and region. York Central puts infrastructure at the heart of a new residential, commercial, and cultural neighbourhood.”
