£10 Million Student Scheme on Working Men’s Club Site

Howard Jenkins, acting on behalf of the Moore Family, has negotiated a sale of the former St Lawrence WMC & adjoining land holdings in Lawrence Street, York.

The WMC was occupied by the Tukes, an important local family who founded The Retreat; Samuel Tuke was a 19thC mental health pioneer and it was his home from 1822 until his death in 1857; the artist Henry Scott Tuke was born there. S Harrison Developments are proposing a sensitive high quality scheme which will safeguard this important Listed Building, and are working closely with local stakeholders and the City of York Council. The scheme will provide a blend of one, two & three bed en-suite student apartments, together with games room, gym, cinema, common room, study space & administrative offices.
