Work began on site in April 2019 and was carried out on our behalf by Mark Casey Ltd. The finished properties were handed over earlier this month. The development has been part-financed with funding from Homes England, with who Bromford is a strategic partner.
Project manager Marek Phillips said: “These homes have transformed this brownfield site, providing high-quality apartments right in the centre of town. Despite having to deal with two big storms, a global pandemic, and three lockdowns, Mark Casey has got the job finished and in spectacular fashion, which is great for our customers who are waiting to move in.
“These new homes are in a great location for customers within walking distance of the Brewery Quarter and providing easy access to other amenities. It’s a great development and I’m sure customers will be proud to call it home.”
