The Gas Works

The Gas Works is set to become York’s most revered city centre residential development. Comprising more than 600 new apartments, each finished to the highest specification, the scheme will breathe new life into the derelict, nine-acre brownfield site.

Vincent & Brown were appointed to submit applications for two private residential zones in the northern half of Heworth Green Gas Works. Designed to deliver a new standard of living, the scheme will comprise 215 high-quality homes alongside a communal central green space at the heart of the development. The architectural influence in the proposal draws inspiration from neighbouring townhouse properties, with buildings set-back from the street to accommodate expansive terraces and lawned gardens. Additionally, the scheme will enhance landscaped communal green space alongside Heworth Green and provide accessible open spaces to incrementally add spatial quality to the development.

Vincent & Brown were commissioned to provide full architectural services on the project and expect to submit a Reserved Matters Planning Application before the end of 2020
