Hull’s city centre vision takes shape

Posted on by in Weekly News

Work has begun on a large demolition scheme, which will enable the construction of the £130M Albion Square development in Hull city centre.

Once complete, the development will feature modern mixed-use spaces, featuring high-quality retail, housing, leisure and enhanced parking facilities set around an enclosed courtyard.

Councillor Daren Hale, portfolio holder for economic investment and regeneration, said: “The Albion Square development is a key site in our long-term strategy for the city centre.

“The centre of the city is benefiting from huge amounts of investment and regeneration at the moment. The revitalised Fruit Market on Hull Marina and the thriving Old Town, including Trinity Market, are continuing examples of this.

“We are delighted that our vision for Hull is being realised – it’s a truly exciting time for the city.”

The 1.7 hectare Albion Square development site encompasses the former Edwin Davis Building, an old BHS and Co-op building, and the Albion Street car park.
