Works starts on new homes in sought after Birchwood location
Work is underway on the development of 66 new homes in the heart of Birchwood, Warrington.
The development on Admirals Road is the first in a series of new rental developments from Nuvu Living. Although a new name to the rental sector, Nuvu Living was formerly known to many in the area as Hive – the private rental specialists behind the highly successful Church Street development of 106 homes near Warrington town centre.
Nuvu Living is a Your Housing Group company, which has a portfolio of 28,000 homes across the North of England and has ambitions to build thousands more homes for people at all stages of life.
The new Birchwood development will comprise of two and three-bedroom homes for private rent and a number for shared ownership homes available to purchase as part of Your Housing Group’s ongoing commitment to tackling the housing crisis in the North West.
The new homes are set to be popular with commuters and families thanks to their close proximity to nearby transport links and community facilities such as the Birchwood shopping centre, schools and doctors surgeries. With the train station a short walk away, commuters will also be able to benefit from a 20-minute train commute to both Liverpool and Manchester.
The first phase of homes is anticipated to be completed and ready to rent from early 2018 and are being constructed by MCI Developments Limited in partnership with Warrington Borough Council and the HCA.
According to official figures, supply of new homes in Warrington is not meeting demand, with a predicted shortfall of 157 homes per year until 2029, demonstrating the desperate need for new homes in the area.
Nuvu Living is designed to fit around today’s busy lifestyles with customers able to benefit from additional services, such as ironing, gardening, dog walking and dry-cleaning collection.
John Cogbill, Chief Operating Officer at Your Housing Group said: “Demand for homes in Warrington is on the rise so we are delighted to be providing these high quality new homes in such a prime spot in Birchwood.
“At Nuvu Living we embrace the principle that renting a home is a lifestyle choice and we’ve spotted the opportunity to offer great family homes with long term rentals to enable people to lay down roots in an area without the uncertainty of short term tenancies. Residents will even have access to our handyman and have the option to add on additional services.
“We’re delighted that work has begun and we look forward to seeing our first residents move in next year.”
