Whitfield & Brown has partnered with Laurus Homes and Assura to bring forward a £6.5m mixed use development in Timperley. The scheme includes a medical centre and library, along with 29 one- and two-bedroom luxury apartments.
The development, based around the town’s Baker Street area, consists of two standalone buildings; one consists of the new medical centre on the ground floor, community library on the first floor and four luxury apartments on the second floor. The second building is a three-storey residential block with 25 one- and two-bedroom apartments.
Graeme Scott, development director at Laurus Homes’ parent organisation Trafford Housing Trust, said: “Baker Street reflects our commitment to partnership working and building high quality homes and communities. Almost half of the apartments are available through shared ownership, which reflects our aim to get everybody on the housing ladder.”
Fifteen of the apartments will be offered for open market sale while the remaining 14 will be sold on a shared ownership basis.
Nigel Biggs, managing director of Whitfield & Brown commented: “We are thrilled to be working as a strategic partner with Laurus Homes and Trafford Housing Trust once again. The relationship extends to three previous high-first class developments which have created stylish homes for professional and families. The popularity of each of the developments being evidenced with the accelerated purchase of the properties and leasing of the retail opportunities.”
The design of the buildings is complete, with the site now cleared in preparation for foundations and delivery of structural steelwork. Construction work will complete in Autumn 2020.
The scheme is being constructed on a design and build basis with Savills as the employer’s agent, Civic Engineer as the structural engineer and AFL UK as the nominated architects.
