National contractor Tolent has been awarded a new £4.1m contract to deliver 32 apartments for client Modernistiq in York.

Sitting just outside York city centre on Redeness Street, the four storey apartment block includes a mix of one and two bedrooms with a private roof terrace on the fourth floor.

Designed by Den Architecture, the project replaces a recently demolished retail outlet and will also include minor landscaping works and create 16 private car parking spaces.

This latest win for Tolent marks a positive step in the company expanding its housing and residential services further into Yorkshire, having been established across the central region of the UK for nearly 30 years.

Regional director for Tolent, John Currie, said: “We’re delighted to have been awarded this contract and to be working with Modernistiq for the first time.

“Tolent is an expert in the residential sector, having completed over £1bn of work spanning from large-scale housing regeneration projects to high-rise apartment blocks across the country. This project is a fantastic opportunity for us to now showcase this expertise to a new audience across the Yorkshire region and beyond.”

Tolent started on site in November and the scheme is due to finish late 2020.

Marc Black, Partner at Modernistiq said: “We are delighted to be working with Tolent on this project. The whole team has been forward thinking and developer friendly in their approach to this development.”

Den Architecture quote: “It’s great to see this exiting project moving onto site and we look forward to working with Tolent on the delivery.”

Tolent is currently on site delivering a £34m project in Leeds to create 216 apartments and a £9.5m student accommodation block on Burley Street that will deliver 87 studio apartments.

With a resumé including Sunderland’s award-winning Beacon of Light, the UK headquarters of Sage in Newcastle, the stunning 1846 Roundhouse in Camden and many projects across the country, the business recently announced plans for a £190m Garden Village in Seaham, County Durham.

The proposed plans include 1,500 homes, half of which will be affordable houses and half of the village will be managed green space, including extensive parkland, a football pitch, play areas and allotments linked by a network of more than 4.75km of landscapes paths and cycleways.
