Sisk has been chosen to deliver a new road, access bridge and rail link for the centre of York.
The £155m development, known as York Central, will contain 2,500 homes and a new commercial quarter.
Sisk has been appointed to initially examine and finalise the design of the first phase of essential infrastructure for the access bridge, the spine road and a new rail link on the site.
According to developer York Central Partnership, this will allow the council to make a decision to approve the construction programme for the infrastructure.
The partnership comprises of Homes England, Network Rail, the National Railway Museum and City of York Council.
York council leader Keith Aspden said: “We look forward to working with the York Central Partnership to secure further improvements to the scheme and with Sisk to begin this essential first phase of work in preparing the York Central site for development.”
Funding for the scheme comes from a range of public funds with a £77.1m bid from the government’s housing infrastructure fund pending a decision.
