A development of 284 apartments for private rent in Warrington’s regenerated town centre has taken a step closer following the completion of a land deal.
All Saints Living has purchased a former industrial site located next to the central station, with construction of a six-storey complex expected to begin in the autumn.
The ground floor will include underground parking for over 250 cars, retail space and a small number of residential units. The upper five floors will contain the majority of the residential units facing on to Winwick Street, John Street, internal courtyards and the station square. A total of 178 of the contemporary open plan units will have two bedrooms, while 106 will come equipped with a single bedroom.
Gary Forrest, Founder and Chairman of The High Street Group, parent company of All Saints Living, said: “As the build to rent, or private rented sector, continues to grow due to demand for homes outstripping supply, we have taken this opportunity to develop these much needed homes. These are all exciting projects which we feel will enhance the towns and cities in which they are developed and I would like to thank all our partners for working so hard to help us make them possible.”
Since 2013, Warrington Council has been pushing ahead with an £800M regeneration programme, with over half that figure already being spent on projects that have already been built or are currently under construction.
