The store will open in the largest existing unit on the site, which is currently being extended to provide even more room.
A spokesman for Asda said the retailer had chosen Springfield Way for its new store as it provided an ideal opportunity in an established retail park location.
He said: "We are delighted to be opening our new Asda Living store in Hull.
"Asda Living provides the best of our non-food range, including George clothing, homeware and the latest DVDs and console games."
More jobs are in the pipeline as Asda is just one of a hat-trick of new tenants secured by the retail park.
Work is now under way to prepare a further two units for new tenants Costa Coffee and shoe retailer Brantano.
David Lyons, group property director at Derwent Holdings – the owner and developer of the park – said: "We're pleased to have secured a series of new lettings, further adding to the consumer offering at this popular retail park."
Both Costa Coffee and Brantano are expected to begin trading later in the summer.
A £950,000 programme of renovation and extension works is being carried out by Russells Construction – the same company responsible for constructing the facility back in 2009.
"This latest project is an important piece of work to help ensure we are providing the right space and service to our valued tenants," said Mr Lyons.
Gareth Russell, construction director at Russells, said: "Having been responsible for the original construction, we are pleased Derwent Holdings has brought us back for this second-phase project.
"This work will ensure that best use is made of the existing units for their new tenants."
