Merchant Gate

The Merchant Gate regeneration scheme is a 17 acre site in Wakefield’s commercial quarter, with over £70M spent delivering phase one and two. The development includes new Council offices, Wakefield One, which has brought many services under one roof, incorporating a museum and library with high quality office space.

Wakefield One also includes a Business Lounge, an area where businesses can get advice and information on start-ups, expansion, or planning issues.

The scheme has also delivered contemporary one and two-bed apartments surrounding a public space and a 1500-space multi-storey car park. In addition there is 47,000 sq ft of office space with the creation of 1 Burgage Square, 2 Burgage Square and Emerald House.

Phase three saw the construction of a brand new state of the art Westgate train station, operating high speed connections to London, opening up a new site with huge potential.
