York's Renaissance

Back to Projects

Making an already 'Great' City even greater, in terms of its functionality and economic performance, was the focus of a renaissance vision developed in the City of York. GENECON supported the lead design team in identifying the priority investments to achieve wider economic growth through the City's two universities, its key businesses and the City Centre cultural and retai environment. Addressing the challenges of the City's movement and accessibility, to link key economic drivers, open up long term employment sites and create a world class learning and business environment alongside its world class heritage assets, was a key emerging priority in order to attract private sector investment into the City.
