The Chocolate Works continues its success as one of York’s most popular developments

Having recently scooped a national award for its innovative design, David Wilson Homes’ iconic development The Chocolate Works has announced major sales success in the final quarter of 2017, with 70% of homes on the development’s first phase now sold.

  • The news comes after a successful first three quarters for the development, which has seen record sales to date – primarily due to its unique design and sought after location in York’s South Bank
  • As well as being awarded a national award for its design, the development has been recognised as a pioneering scheme by national architects and construction organisations, demonstrating the developer’s visionary approach to the historic regeneration of the brown field site
  • Amongst those purchasing at the development are a range of different buyers, from professionals and growing families utilising the Part Exchange scheme to take their next step on the property ladder, to those downsizing to a new home – one downsizer being a former worker at Terry’s Chocolate Factory, Kath Blackett, who now, at 84, has returned to the site to enjoy life in the heart of York’s new and exclusive community

Sarah Hanna, Sales Manager at David Wilson Homes Yorkshire East, commented:

“We are really overwhelmed by how well everyone has received the development, from local residents to the wider York community and even the national media and industry leaders. It’s testament to the hard work and attention to detail we have delivered throughout every phase of the design. “The site has seen huge success with a range of different buyers throughout this year, and we are now in a position where we are 70% sold on phase one. The buyers are so varied, so it makes for a really nice community feel – we have young professional couples living alongside those that have recently retired. It’s exactly what we wanted to achieve, so we’re delighted that the development has become the strong and thriving community we have all worked so hard to create.”
