Hull offices come forward with LUF cash

A £2m project to refurbish surplus office space at the city centre building occupied by law firm Gosschalks has received vital funding.

The project at 61 Dock Street will be partly funded by the Levelling Up Fund after developer Sixtyone QG was awarded £381,807 by Hull City Council towards the cost. Sixtyone QG is a subsidiary of local property firm Horncastle.

Around 3,700 sq ft of vacant office space will be released to the market for third party use.

The work will include replacing the gas heating system with electric.

Garry Taylor, assistant director for major projects, culture and place at the council, said: “City centre office space is much sought after in Hull and this project will help to provide extra provision.

“I am delighted that the council has been able to support the applicant to make this a possibility through LUF.”
