This part of the Castle Gateway Masterplan means Piccadilly would become a new vibrant city-living neighbourhood, based around a new pedestrain friendly street; a hub for independent traders with apartments above.

Proposals for Piccadilly

A new junction at the south of Piccadilly will allow traffic to turn right into Piccadilly across the gyratory.

Once the Spark:York tenancy ends in June 2020, 17-21 Piccadilly would become a permanent development of small commercial units at ground floor level with apartments above.

Castle Mills car park would also provide ground floor commercial space, new apartments and a pedestrian cycle bridge over the River Foss to the new public spaces beyond.  

Although we don't own the other sites on Piccadilly (Banana Warehouse, 46 Piccadillly and Ryedale House) we'll work with developers to invest in reducing the width of the road, improving the look of the street and bringing derelict sites back into use.
