Live in One of York's Most Iconic Buildings

Built by Joseph Rowntree in the early 1890s, this was York’s famous ‘garden factory’, where open space and education facilities supported the wellbeing of factory workers and their families. The site is of historical significance to York, and this sensitive restoration will bring life back to a building that for years was central to the economy of the city.

A sixth floor roof extension will provide fantastic views, whilst the refreshed layout is sympathetic to the building’s previous life as a factory. Design features which reference the past will enhance the feeling of being part of the history of this incredible building.
