Wykeland Group has submitted plans for two buildings designed by The Harris Partnership, totalling 31,000 sq ft of offices, co-working and meeting space. The new buildings complete Wykelands @TheDock tech campus in Hull’s Fruit Market creative quarter which has the C4DI (Centre for Digital Innovation) tech hub as its centrepiece and is currently fully occupied.
Sited to the north and the west of C4DI, the new facilities will include offices, co-working spaces for digital freelances and specialists, meeting rooms and conference space, all with ultrafast gigabit internet connections. About 200 start-up or scale-up tech businesses are based at C4DI and the scheme is also home to digital innovation teams from companies such as safety company Arco and global defence and security specialist Saab.
David Donkin, property director of Wykeland Group, said: “@TheDock has proven to be hugely successful, transforming a derelict dry dock site into a thriving community of tech-based innovation and enterprise. “This further investment will add to the hundreds of highly-skilled and well-paid jobs already created on site, while also making a major contribution to the exciting regeneration of the Fruit Market quarter and wider city centre economy.”
