Hull Albion Square

← Back to projects

Planning has now been passed for the £130m Albion Square development in Hull City Centre.

Through meticulous planning and a clear understanding of Hull City’s future plans and investment,

AFL Architects created an impressive mixed-use masterplan, which will go on to breathe new life into the centre and high street.

The plans, which were completed back in August 18, include new shops, restaurants and apartments, as well as a 612-space multi-storey car park. A new ice rink will also be built within the new development to add leisure facilities to the area and to replace the dated Hull Arena complex in Kingston Street.

"We have enjoyed working extensively with the council to create another exciting, ambitious project that is set to attract businesses and visitors into the city centre. Our team has worked tirelessly to create a solution that retains the Three Ships Mural, involving a collaborative effort from all involved, including the local community. We look forward to the designs coming to fruition."
John Roberts, Director, AFL Architects

The design represents a major strategic project in line with the City’s Local Plan. The development site encompasses the Edwin Davis Building, the former BHS and Co-Op building and the Albion Street car park.

Part of the complex requirements included the preservation of the historic Three Ships Mural, which sits at 66 x 64ft and was originally commissioned by the Co-operative Society in 1963. The designs submitted have included retaining this and protecting it behind a curved glass wall.
