The One Point Helping to build a Great City!
The One Point are proud to be a part of the fantastic regeneration and development work currently taking place in Hull.
Our Managing Director, Martin Lauer became a stakeholder in Hull's future by opening Hull's first artist-run, not for profit contemporary art gallery in the city centre (www.red-gallery.com) in 1997, over 11 years ago.
As a company we activily get involved in local initiatives aimed at improving the landscape of the City and the lives of people that live within it. It is our way of thanking the City that gave us our opportunites. As a company, amongst other things, we are Hull City Bondholders (a City re-development agency scheme for businesses), KCFM SMILE Foundation Media and Communication partners helping to change the live of local people and I.T. support partners of the CAT ZERO project aimed at getting 14-19 year old youngsters in to training or employment.
There really is a buzz about the City as Hull makes huge strides forward in terms of its regeneration.
2007 saw the opening of St Stephen's, a £200m retail-led scheme which added big name stores such as Zara, La Senza, H&M and Jane Norman to the city's retail offer as well as an Express by Holiday Inn, two new cinemas, including Europe's first multiplex digital cinema, the Albermarle Music Centre and the beautifully restored Paragon Interchange which delivers some 24,000 people to St Stephens' door each day.
Situated on Hull's spectacular waterfront, Humber Quays is taking shape and is now home to The Royal Bank of Scotland, PricewaterhouseCoopers and World Trade Centre Hull & Humber.
With over £1.5bn of investment currently transforming the city centre, 2008 will see more exciting development with stylish new waterfront homes along the East Bank of the River Hull and overlooking Hull Marina, in addition to a selection of new restaurants and cafe bars at the Princes Quay shopping centre and a brand new, purpose-built home for the internationally acclaimed Hull Truck Theatre.
