The Cocoa Works

An exciting new development opportunity adjoining the Nestlé factory in the heart of York

The Cocoa Works - Nestle Factory - York


The site abuts the Southern boundary of Nestlé’s York Campus and is located between Haxby Road and Wigginton Road, approximately 1 mile to the North of the City Centre.

This is a rare opportunity to develop a large mixed use site in one of Britain’s most historic and prestigious Cities. The total area is 16.75 acres, most of which has been cleared ready for development. In addition, one of the original 6 storey manufacturing buildings has been retained in the Haxby Road Conservation Area for conversion. This and the listed Rowntree Memorial Library will provide unique character to this development.

There is Detailed Consent in respect of the retained buildings for retail, offices, live/work units, apartments and student accommodation and Outline Consent over the remainder of the site for family housing, an assisted living development, 60,000 sq ft of offices and a community building, all set in a landscaped site.
