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. 200,000 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.
