The site, which is located alongside York Racecourse and once produced iconic brands such as TerryΓÇÖs Chocolate Orange and All Gold, will become home to two hotels, offices space, restaurants, a care home as well as a variety of shops and residential houses, apartments and affordable accommodation.
