Coney Street Riverside
Coney Street Riverside is taking shape, transforming this iconic part of York into a welcoming and vibrant city centre destination for visitors and the local community to enjoy. This will enhance York's unique character by creatively linking the riverside with the high street in ways which surprise, delight and entertain.
Coney Street Riverside will be a place full of character, intrigue and charm, connecting an established retail and hospitality destination with the riverside and, in doing so, opening up opportunities for all.
