UK: Kingston House in Hull city centre is set to undergo a £6 million redevelopment in to a mixed-use live/work space.

The property on Bond Street will be the new home of K2, described as "the city's first multi-space concept of its kind, which will incorporate flexible office and co-working space".

The building will contain 14 serviced apartments, a 100-key hotel, retail and leisure space, a restaurant, gym, bar and a café with rooftop terrace.

The 90,000 square foot site is being redeveloped by Beverley-based business Tradepark Ltd, which purchased Kingston House in August.

Contractors MLS Group will start work on the development this week, with the first office space ready in November and the first serviced apartments available from January 2018.

Mark Butters, director at Tradepark Ltd, said: "K2 will be a revolutionary building, designed for a thriving, modern city. It will bring businesses, creative professionals, residents and visitors together in what will be the first concept of its kind in Hull city centre. The complex has been inspired by contemporary, flexible co-working spaces, serviced offices and apartments in the trendy neighbourhoods of New York and east London, which we believe will attract organisations and enterprising individuals alike."

"Kingston House is an iconic Hull building thanks to its modernist style and being one of the highest tower blocks in the city centre. But it has dated since its heyday in the 1960s. We are bringing the building into the future and creating a bold, multi-space complex where people can work, play, shop, eat and stay at the heart of a regenerated city," he added.

Councillor Martin Mancey, portfolio holder for regeneration, investment and planning at Hull City Council, said: "We are delighted to see major investment into this prime city centre site, providing a new fantastic offer for businesses, residents and visitors to the city, not only boosting the local economy of the city as a whole, but also stimulating the evening economy of the city centre. Kingston House is ripe for investment and I would like to congratulate Tradepark Ltd on their vision for the future of this well-known building. Alongside the council's £100 million capital investment into the regeneration of the city centre, it is really encouraging to see businesses like Tradepark contributing the re-birth of Hull with major investments like this. I look forward to seeing work start on site and the finished product in the coming months."
