Homes Proudly Brought to you by Latimer

The values we share with Joseph Rowntree – of providing decent homes and building sustainable and thriving communities – make The Cocoa Works a very special project for Latimer.


Honouring the Rowntree Legacy

The Cocoa Works was much more than a place to earn a wage. For thousands of workers it was a caring community that enhanced their quality of life.


Be Part
of a New

With great care, we are re-establishing a Rowntree community and giving fresh life to a heritage building that’s been the soul of York for over 130 years.
