Your Housing Group has started work on a £11.8m independent living apartment complex for over 55s in the heart of Northwich in Cheshire.
The development comprises 70 one and two bedroom apartments including 45 for shared ownership and 25 for outright sale. The four-storey building on Watling Street, just off Chester Road is alongside the River Dane in Northwich town centre, with good access to local amenities, shops, and transport links.
Properties will offer a high standard of fixtures and fittings and interior decoration with a modern kitchen complete with oven, hob and extractor, stylish wet room and a good-sized living space, making it easy for residents to keep their existing furniture when they downsize.
The scheme will incorporate on-site amenities including a bistro, and offer landscaped gardens and parking facilities to the rear.
Lorraine Donnelly, Director of Development for Your Housing Group said: “It’s great to be able to secure this opportunity to provide quality apartments for those over 55. The development is ideally located for those planning their future retirement – just a stone’s throw from the River Dane and a good selection of local shops and restaurants. Northwich is a fantastic place to retire to, and we hope by providing retirement living accommodation in the area, we can help free up much-needed family homes for local people.“
Your Housing Group became one of Homes England’s Strategic Partners earlier this year. This development was part-funded with a £2m grant from Homes England which forms part of the Wave 2 funding package – in line with the Government’s aspiration to provide 11,000 affordable new homes across the country.
Your Housing Group is working in partnership with Galliford Try on this project and the development is designed by Cheshire-based architects, Pozzoni.
The development is due for completion in January 2021.
