Merchant Gate, Wakefield

Total Value £130M
Duration 12Y

Merchant Gate is one of our most diverse schemes in the heart of one of Yorkshire’s cathedral cities, which has transformed formerly derelict land with railway sidings into a vibrant and bustling mixed-use gateway development adjacent to Wakefield train station.

As part of our £130 million vision for Wakefield city centre, Merchant Gate has brought forward c. 700,000 sq ft of offices, leisure / retail, education space, alongside a number of homes.

We delivered Merchant Gate over 12 years through our joint venture with Legal & General and Homes England – The English Cities Fund - in partnership with Wakefield Council Network Rail, and East Coast Mainline.
