£41m scheme will also include leisure facilities, cinema, shops and community hub

York Stadium

ISG has been confirmed as the preferred construction partner for the £41m York Community Stadium and Leisure Complex scheme.

The mixed-use stadium development, which ISG will build as part of a consortium led by GLL, is intended to become a major leisure destination for the North of England. As well as an 8,000-seat stadium for York’s professional football and rugby teams, it includes hospitality and conferencing facilities, a leisure centre and a community hub.

The leisure facility will house a 25m six-lane pool, with separate teaching and fun pools, a multi-use sports hall, a 100-station gym with dance and spinning studios and an extreme adventure sports zone, and three external floodlit 3G sports pitches.

The three-storey community hub, meanwhile, will provide accommodation for key partners, including York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, York Against Cancer, York St John University and Be Independent (CIC).

ISG will also build a series of new retail units and a cinema complex.

The project is expected to commence on site in summer 2015, with completion scheduled for autumn 2016.
