York Community Stadium
Location : York | Status : Ongoing | Sector : Sport, Stadia
Wrenbridge Sport are the development partner and project manager with leisure operator Greenwich Leisure Ltd for the City of York Council’s flagship project.
The scheme, located at Monks Cross just outside of the city centre, incorporates an 8,000 seat stadium for football and rugby league together with a leisure complex sports hall, 25m swimming pool, gym, dance studio, climbing wall and outdoor artificial pitches. The community hub will be the first of its kind and will provide bespoke facilities for York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, Explore York Libraries and a local Cancer Trust.
Wrenbridge Sport is developing 60,000 sq ft of new retail, a 13 screen IMAX cinema and several restaurants that form a brand new entertainment complex for the City and provides the funding that ensures the stadium project can finally be delivered. Over £50m of private sector funding has been put into the project with £5m from the public sector, which is a fantastic result for the community and an example of how this type of public project can be delivered.
Planning consent has been secured, archaeological works undertaken and a package of enabling demolition and ground works has recently been completed ahead of the main construction works starting on site
