City Council Offices to be occupied by Students

Offices of c.20,000 ft² occupied for many years by The City of York Council have been sold by way of a development lease to Forshaw Land & Property Group who have secured planning consent for 60 high quality studio apartments; acting jointly with LSH on behalf of LPA Receivers, Howard Jenkins handled the sale .

The property in George Hudson Street comprises a substantial Grade II Listed Building, previously managed by Howard Jenkins for over 10 years. The accommodation sold comprises offices on ground, first, second & third floors with basement storage; the developers will be undertaking a comprehensive refurbishment and conversion of the offices to student accommodation with associated facilities including shop, cycle store, manager’s office, communal lounge, gym and laundry, and the scheme is expected to be ready by Summer 2016.

The ground floor restaurant units provide an attractive investment opportunity which will shortly become available for sale.
