Work has started on a new residential development in Goose Green, to comprise 13 one-bedroom apartments.
Construction company Artez has begun work on The Tannery development on behalf of developer Novo Property Group. It’s been designed by architects Calderpeel.
The site, which was previously occupied by a workshop, was obtained by Novo in December 2014 with planning permission for nine apartments. Amended plans for a 13-apartment development – ranging in size from 380 to 485 sq ft – were submitted and accepted in July 2015.
Ben Fearns, director of Novo, said: “Goose Green has undergone considerable regeneration over the last few years, with a number of new bars, restaurants and fitness facilities appearing. We’re thrilled to provide luxury property in a thriving location for young professionals and singles.
“We’re confident that Artez’s vast experience in residential development will ensure the scheme is of the highest quality, bringing a burst of style and elegance to the area.”
Mike Banton, managing director at Artez, added: “We’ve seen a major increase in residential contracts, which has been a real boost for the local economy and housing market. Schemes like The Tannery reflect the industry’s response to the need for good quality, residential development.”
The apartments, ranging in value from £139,950 to £159,995, have been released with five plots already reserved. The Tannery is due for completion in December.
