Congratulations to the winner of the Residential award at the RICS Awards grand final: Clementhorpe Maltings, York (Yorkshire and Humber).

Located in a prime residential location in York City centre, Clementhorpe Maltings sat unoccupied for over 50 years.

The Grade II former malthouse building was owned by City of York Council, who invited developer bids for the purchase and sustainable conversion of the building. Northminster Ltd, a local development and property company proposed an innovative purchase and profit share development method for a scheme comprising of six new contemporary townhouses in the existing building shell.

RICS judges praised this scheme as an exemplar of teamwork, tenacity and courage to tackle a difficult project. Varying zones of flood risk, a fragile and damaged listed building, archaeological interest and a constrained site all added to the challenge. The outcome is a well-designed, attractive development which has revitalised an old and decaying building.
