A landmark 1960s office and retail complex in York is being transformed into a mixed-use development featuring stylish apartments and modern commercial space.

Located at the eastern gateway to the city centre, Stonebow House was built in 1964 in the brutalist architectural style following York’s slum clearance programme. It is being refurbished by developer, the Oakgate Group, to radically improve its controversial appearance and greatly enhance this important location.

The comprehensive redevelopment will see the upper floors of the former office tower converted into 17 luxury apartments, while the lower floors will be stripped back to expose the original concrete structure to provide almost 3,000m2 of retail and leisure space.

An existing raised car parking level above the podium will be retained and rearranged to provide private parking for the new residential units within the tower.

Approved Inspectors from Bureau Veritas Building Control UK is providing support to the development team during the project. They will ensure continued compliance with the technical requirements of the Building Regulations as the existing structure is totally refurbished and a contemporary internal layout created, while the sound structure and features of the existing building are retained.

The development benefits from excellent transport links and sustainable modern construction techniques will be employed throughout. This will see the optimisation of external glazing and the use of sustainable materials plus the installation of heat recovery systems and natural ventilation where possible.

Project manager and quantity surveyor to the scheme is RBA and the design is by DLA Design Group.
