Sitting just outside York city centre, Icona 1 is a new four storey development that will welcome its first residents in the coming weeks.

With a mix of 32 one and two-bedroom apartments and a private roof terrace for residents with views looking out to York Minster, the development is already 50% sold as the team look forward to opening the show flat later in the summer.

Built by Tolent on behalf of Modernistiq Developments, the site replaces an old retail outlet with high specification apartments creating a new community just a stone’s throw away from all of York’s city centre amenities.

Lucinda Black, head of design and sales at Modernistiq, said: “It has been fantastic working alongside Tolent on this scheme, the whole process was flawless from start to finish. We look forward to the next chapter in the Modernistiq/Tolent adventure.”

Alan Powell, director at Den Architecture, said: “Fantastic to have been involved in this project from initial sketch concept through to completion. Great to assist Tolent in delivering the scheme.”

The successful handover of the project marks another positive step as Tolent continue to expand its housing and residential offering across Yorkshire.

John Currie, regional director for Tolent, said: “This project is another fantastic addition to our portfolio and the team can be really proud that they have delivered another quality project.

“Tolent is an expert in the residential sector, having completed over £1bn of work spanning large-scale housing regeneration projects to high-rise apartment blocks across the country.”

The national contractor is currently on site delivering 216 build-to-rent apartments in the Holbeck Urban Village area of Leeds. The £23m contract at Sweet Street is due to handover at the end of the year.
