Galliford Try Partnerships has started work on a £20m development on Edge Lane, Liverpool, after being chosen by Liverpool Mutual Homes to deliver 145 houses and apartments.
Designed by Bowker Sadler Architecture, the project includes a mix of homes, with 107 one and two-bed apartments set in three and four-storey blocks fronting Edge Lane.
Facing Royton Street, there will be also 38 two and three-bed homes. These will be available for shared ownership while the flats are earmarked for rent-to-buy.
Plans were approved for the project in November last year, with the developer making a £145,000 provision for off-site open space, and Galliford Try has now started work on site with anticipated completion set for 2020.
The Edge Lane project forms part of Liverpool Mutual Homes’ plan to build 1,500 new houses across the city region. Other projects in the housing association’s pipeline include a 180-home mixed extra care scheme in Kirkby, which is being brought forward in partnership with Lane End.
Brendan Blythe, regional managing director at Galliford Try Partnerships said: “The Edge Lane development will see a high-profile area within Liverpool transformed as well as the delivery of much needed affordable housing for sale in a commutable area to the city centre.
“The scheme has been designed with residents in mind and will excellent provide amenities and parking provisions in addition to good transport links in and out of Liverpool.”
