Wykeland Group setting the standard

Wykeland Group has set the standard for regeneration for more than 50 years, developing over 12m sq ft of high-quality commercial space across the UK and creating a legacy of renewal, jobs and prosperity.

Wykeland’s brand statement “Regeneration for the next generation” reflects the company’s long-term view and commitment to sustainable, environment-friendly development.

The company is a leading developer in Yorkshire and the Humber, with a £500m development pipeline within the region. Wykeland is a long-standing and trusted regeneration partner of the public and private sectors, having the area’s long-term economic growth at the core of its business.

More than 25,000 people are employed in buildings developed by Wykeland in the Humber region alone. Of these, 3,500 are in buildings Wykeland has developed in the East Riding of Yorkshire within the past 10 years.

Current Wykeland projects include the fast-growing Bridgehead business park close to the Humber Bridge; the flagship @TheDock development in Hull’s Fruit Market; the expanding Melton West business park, west of Hull; northern Lincolnshire’s premier business location, Europarc; and the Flemingate mixed-use regeneration scheme in Beverley.

Wykeland is also working in a joint venture with Beal Homes to continue to regenerate the Fruit Market area of Hull, in partnership with Hull City Council, creating the city’s first urban village. The £80m transformation of the Fruit Market is Hull’s biggest urban regeneration project and involves a n ongoing wave of investment in creative and digital businesses, restaurants, bars, galleries and shops, creating one of the most vibrant and fastest-growing communities in the North.

In addition, Wykeland is working in partnership with Hambleton District Council to transform the former Northallerton Prison site in North Yorkshire into an exciting new retail, leisure and business destination. The £17m Treadmills scheme includes a mix of retail units, anchored by Lidl; the C4DI Northallerton tech hub; and an “eCampus” digital educational facility. The latest phase features construction of an Everyman cinema and new restaurant units.​ As a Major Partner of Hull UK City of Culture 2017, Hull-based Wykeland created Stage @TheDock, a stunning amphitheatre within Hull’s former Central Dry Dock as the city’s only new permanent venue for Hull’s year as the nation’s capital of culture. The development illustrates Wykeland’s commitment to culture and the arts, including long-standing sponsorship of Hull’s Freedom Festival and being the first of the business “angels” who backed Hull’s bid to be UK City of Culture.  Wykeland believes physical, social and cultural regeneration are inextricably linked and works with partners and local people to ensure its developments deliver enduring community benefits. Wykeland has a proud, long-term track record of bringing vacant and derelict land to life, stimulating economic and cultural development and changing the local landscape, for the better.
