Perfectly situated in one of York’s busiest tourist areas this property was purchased by Oakgate as an excellent development opportunity for the Group to add to their already strong presence in York.
Oakgate undertook a comprehensive redevelopment of this 8,656 sq. ft. property to facilitate York’s latest tourist attraction ‘Chocolate’ and the Society of St Paul’s bookshop. ‘Chocolate’ opened in March 2012 providing York with a unique tourist attraction, showcasing York’s chocolate and confectionery heritage across 3 floors and over 6,000 sq. ft. The property was subsequently sold after redevelopment in 2013.
